AREDN at the 2018 Marine Corp Marathon

The Marine Corp Marathon was held on October 28, 2018. For the last several years, D-STAR ID-1 radios (and 9600bps packet radios) have been used to provide medical communications back to the runner database. This year, AREDN was tested as a possible replacement to the existing equipment.

The 2018 test successfully linked together all of the medical tents and the net operations tent. In 2019 the test will be expanded to cover the entire race course. The PDF presentation (see link below) shows the deployed equipment at each of the medical tent locations as well as a relay node used to transition out of an "urban canyon" setting.
