~Radio Operation Guidelines~ When making a radio call use the persons name Or nick name as your first call. “Joe Smith!” Then wait for a response. . . It may take a few seconds for them to pick up and respond so be patient. We are all working or controlling vehicles. The response When/if you hear your name is called over should be a simple “Yeah Go Ahead” You should then begin your conversation with out delay. This will give plenty of time for people to respond, and make it very clear who you are trying to get a hold of. Radio confusion is counter productive to the tools use. Please respect them! 1: No Swearing! If you wouldn’t say it in church, don’t say it over that radio. Period. 2: Keep Your conversations As Brief As Possible. The longer you are on the airways, the less we can get through to other team members. Sometimes speed of communication is key. 3: No radio calls to persons within visual distance. If you have line of sight with them, please make the effort to communicate with them directly. 4: All #TeamRideRevival Radios handed out to participants must stay on their persons and turned on, at all times!!! This is crucial to safety! If there is an emergency, we need to be able to get a hold of key team members at any given time. Additional Notes: Because we strongly suggest you equip your vehicle with a CB radio, and are asking each person to acquire and carry a hand held FRS radio (walkie talkie), please leave in vehicle communications between group members to that equipment. We want to be using the team radios for field use as much as possible. *Will Not Apply To Street Car Events* *Use Team Radios For All Emergency Communications. Contact the “Trail Leader” ASAP* Thank You Bronze
