Head of the Hooch Rowing Race Relies on FreeWave Wireless Data Radios for Accurate Timing

BOULDER, Colo. Feb. 22, 2011 Chattanooga, Tenn.

FreeWave FGR2-PE 900 MHz radios are set up along the 5,000 meter (3.1 mile) racecourse, one at the start, one on a building roof to ensure line of sight, and another at the finish.  The radios are installed in conjunction with a dual chronometer timing system that offers accuracy down to a tenth of a second.  Each of the 2,000-plus crew’s start and finish times are captured in the timing system database as they race and the FreeWave radios transfer the times from the start line chronometer to the timing computer system located at the finish line.  Originally, the start line time transfers were done over voice radio, but as the number of race participants has grown over the years this became impractical.

"The radios are easy to install and have provided a consistently reliable data link over the years," said Kerr.  "By updating our system to the FGR2-PE this year, we believe timing will continue to run smoothly for years to come."
