Voice Communications

This is the predominant mode used by Dorset RAYNET on the majority of our events. Utilising Mobile operators, which includes 4WD and Motorcycle units, fitted with high power VHF and UHF transceivers. A network of communications is overlaid on to the area of the event. Typically these operators are controlled from a central Control Station co-located with the Organisers. Ranges of up to 20 miles are probable but we have the expertise and equipment should that prove inadequate to implement repeater systems and longer range links. We have provided communications from the centre of Bath to the Organisers situated in Bournemouth for the Bath to Bournemouth cycle ride. This included continuous location information of the leaders for the entire route.
