2005 MMT Radio Support

Larry Miller KB6VAA of the Shenandoah Valley Amateur Radio Club coordinated the efforts of the amateur radio operators to provide emergency communications and runner tracking throughout the race. Without their efforts, there would have been aid stations where communications by other means would have been very poor. We had some small problems but were able to overcome them and maintain good communications.

Operators were from the Shenandoah Valley and Northern Virginia areas. Despite the long hours many of the operators put in, they maintained a professional manner throughout. The Virginia Happy Trails Running Club really appreciated the service provided by these amateur radio operators:
