Sean Kelly Tour

On the 24th of August AREN members made good use of the APRS Network, in order to keep track of the position of the end of each group of cyclists participating in the Sean Kelly Tour. Good use was also made of the South East Repeater Network for communicating with officials in what would have been communications blackspots (for the mobile phone networks).

In total there were 8 operators involved,

  • Seamus Ryan, EI8EPB
  • John McCarthy, EI8JA
  • Eamonn Kavanagh, EI3FFB
  • Gareth Wilmot, EI7FZB
  • Francis Lenane, EI5GOB
  • John Ronan, EI7IG
  • Conor O’Neill, EI4JN
  • John Ketch, EI2GN

Many thanks to all that participated and to the repeater keepers for permission to use the repeaters.
