Cork City Marathon use TETRA communications to coordinate event

Cork City Marathon soley use TETRA communications to man the event. Cork City Council , Cork City Fire , Civil Defence and volunteers from St John Ambulance, Irish Red Cross and Order of Malta came together with the use of a single event talk-group and GPS mapping application for the day.

Communications was seamless and the event overseers were very happy with coverage in areas of known UHF blackspots. Cork city marathon is a large scale event covering 26 miles with almost 10,000 entrants taking part and many many more spectators lining the route.
