Report from Sandringham Charity Horse Ride 27th Sept 2020
We established a good 2m net for the main traffic on 144.650. A small PMR net was also run to the non-licensed marshals that helped at two of the check points.
With little usage over the year several batteries on handhelds failed at control, even having been put on a top up charge the day before. A lesson to check in advance the condition of older NiMH cells. The main sealed lead acid battery used for the repeater unit also suffered a similar fate at around 15:00.
