Successful Jackadgery Enduro
WICEN NR provided comms for the inaugural horse endurance ride held in Grange State Forest, north of Jackadgery (west of Grafton). There were 3 checkpoints and base, manned by 9 WICEN personnel. It was a busy time, setting up the portable 2m repeater (VK2REP) and logging 3 different ride circuits with a total of 97 riders (and horses of course). Pic below shows the ride base, looking south from the WICEN area.
