This past weekend, July 20-21 ten radio operators provided communications for the Bike MS: Cactus & Crude Ride.  A big THANKS to the following who participated on Saturday on the Midland to Big Spring part of the ride:

Landon Bell  KF5ENH
Chad Burkhardt  KC5VUF
Mike Cralle  KF5NFR
Dwayne Frantz  KD5VOU
Scott Johnson  KD5MHM
Clint Lannom  N5MXE
Stetson Rogers  KF5WCE
Doug Salyers  KB5TUN
Alan Sewell  N5NA
Michael Watson  KB5KNF

The following also participated on Sunday on the Big Spring to Post leg providing assistance to the Big Spring club:  KF5ENH, KC5VUF, N5MXE, KF5WCE, N5NA, and KB5KNF.

Other ham operators on the route were bike mechanics David Ham, KE5FEJ, and John Bean, KE5EZE, and NMSS VP Tony Ralf, KE5ZTZ.  Big Spring hams assisting on Saturday were KE5EUR, KF5FTY, KC5ALH, and K5BKE.

One rider had to be transported by ambulance on Saturday.  Thanks to KF5WCE the ambulance quickly arrived on the scene.  There were no incidents on Sunday.

The first rider arrived in Big Spring on Saturday at 10:09 am.  The first rider arrived in Post on Sunday at 10:10 am.  The weather was great both days.

Thanks to Jim, KK5MV, who replaced the Gail repeater on Thursday before the ride, we had excellent repeater coverage on Sunday.

As always, the Bike MS: Cactus & Crude organizers greatly appreciate our assistance.  The radio operators play a big part in making the bike ride a success every year!

73, Alan N5NA
