We have been asked to support the Davis Cup Marching Band Competition again this year on Oct 21st.  More to come but please consider supporting this event.  I emailed out a request for support for all DCARC members on October 1st.  If you can support the event between 1200-2200, please email me at: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it   and I'll send you an information packet.  Gary Johnson stepped up and took the Net Control position from 1000-1630 but I still need another Net Control or two beginning at 1600 until 2200.  Johnny-K7ZZQ



The Davis Cup Invitational Marching Band Competition is held at Davis High School in Kaysville, Utah on Tuesday Oct 21, 2014. The first radio volunteers need to be at Davis High school in Kaysville by 10am to begin checking in bands, manage a couple parking lots, warm up areas, and the field. The actual band competition starts at 12pm and extends to around 10pm.

This competition has been supported by amateur radio volunteers for several years. We would like you to assist for at least a couple of hours. The assignments will be associated with shadowing Davis Cup volunteers to provide radio communications. There are often occasions where you are on your own and will need to communicate with net control for instructions pertinent to the assignment.

As always, we are there to support this event by providing timely information. For Ham Radio Operators, this is another opportunity to serve your community and hone your radio skills.

This will be a Directed Net with Tactical call signs.

What will you need?

  1. A 2-meter HT, preferably with a speaker mike and ear bud, especially if working near the field of competition.
  2. The primary frequency will be 145.570 MHz. Secondary frequency will be 145.610 MHz.
  3. A High-visibility Safety Vest or something close.
  4. A small pocket notebook and pen/pencil
  5. A flashlight, if volunteering extends after 5pm
  6. Appropriate clothing. 2011, 2012 and 2013 was excellent weather but it got cool around 10pm.
  7. Water and snacks
  8. A Folding Chair & Umbrella (optional)

The Bands this year will move onto the north area past the end zone and wait quietly until the end of the prior performance. At that point they may begin moving along the back side of the field.

South Gate – This position is also know at the ATV gate and is located at CS1 on the Area Map. Several bands have ATV's to pull their pit equipment. The ATV's need to go outside the gate to turn around so they do not damage the running track. The radio operator will open and close the gate and manage the crowd in the process. Will need to coordinate the gate if First Aid in needed.
