Amateur Radios part in the CN Cycle for CHEO (Childrens Hospital of Eastern Ontario) went off without a hitch and if you follow the link from the Ottawa Citizen (below) you will have a bit of information on the event itself.
The Ottawa ARES (Emergency Measures Radio Group ) provided the communications support.
From a radio side of things we used two VHF Repeaters (146.880 primary with 146.940 backup) and most areas of the course if not all were accessable with a handheld with the rubber duck. We provided the event with dependable communications and about 30 extra bodies and as with every public service event we ended doing more than we were supposed to and we did it darn good as well.
The length of the event varied as there was a 70km route, a 35km route and several smaller routes all intertwined on the same basic course. Depending on the length of your ride you just detoured at various points to get the right distance for your choice of participation.
Sorry I have no pictures of this event but I was operating a checkpoint with Diane VA3DB who is an excellent photographer and you will be able to check the Ottawa Amateur Radio Club Website and there will be some pics there from our location at least.
It was a good event and it showed our hobby to the general public… Very worthwhile cause as well
