Satellitephonestore.com, the official satellite communications sponsor of SCORE International has put together the following to options to help with safety and communications in Baja.
Iridium ICOM PTT Radios:
Rent or Purchase Iridium ICOM radios and have the ability to join the new Weatherman Talk Group.
- This is a Public talk group with coverage over LA, San Diego, and all of Baja Peninsula.
- The Talk Group is open year-round but is not monitored outside of SCORE Races.
- Single Radios can also join but cannot use as a comms channel during races.
- Teams will need to buy an extra talk group to pair with the Weatherman Talk group so that it’s not used for team communications.
- Use the same radio rules and etiquette as Weatherman Radio: https://www.pciraceradios.com/.../weatherman-relay-etiquette
- Access to the Talk Group can be restricted if abused
$10/month for subscribers + plus need to have a primary race channel
