Welcome to UtahSAG

Amateur (HAM) radio volunteers brought together by our desire to support public service events throughout the state of Utah

About Us

 UtahSAG is an informal association of Amateur (HAM) radio volunteers who provide support services for charity events such as The Tour de Cure (American Diabetes Association), Cycle for Life (The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation), The Summit Challenge (The National Ability Center), Ride 4 Education/Ride 4 Respect (Utah School Employees Association), Ride with the Angels (Angel Hands), Scouting for Food (Utah Food Bank) . In addition to these charity events we also support public century bicycle rides that make donations to charity organizations such as all of the rides (Gran Fondo Salt Lake, Giro Donna, Bear Lake Monster etc.) put on by Extra Mile Racing (Team Kid Courage), Front Runner Century (Chron's and Colitis Foundation as well as Air Force and Navy charities), The Wildflower Pedalfest (Utah Bicycle Collective), The Huntsman 140 (Huntsman Cancer Institute), Little Red Riding Hood (Huntsman Cancer Institute) and other public events such as marathons, parades and community holiday ceremonies.

In addition, UtahSAG makes it's volunteers and equipment available to local public service and community organizations such as police and fire departments, when requested, in the event of public emergencies as well as the National Weather Service of Utah to provide weather information from around the state during emergency weather conditions. 

By supporting these events UtahSAG provides services to around 4,000 event participants each year. SAG services include transportation, food and water and general care so that the participants can enjoy the event they are participating in.

July 28, 2018 5:00 AM to approximately 5:00 PM

Iron Lung Ride

 Iron Lung Ride, Salt Lake City, UT, 32, 80, or 120 mile options out and back starting at This Is The Place Heritage Park and turning around near Snowbasin Resort. Challenging climbing, with plenty of rollers and flats to recover. Bring the family and make this part of your Pioneer Day celebration. Utah Triple Crank qualifier, along with Rockwell Relay and LOTOJA.   

There are 3 rest stops, 1 at the Salt Lake/Morgan County Line at the top of Big Mountain, 2 at the LDS Church in Morgan and 3 at the top of Trappers Loop near Snow Basin.  It would be best if there were two operators at each rest stop.  We are looking at needing 4 to 6 SAG drivers.  Shuttles may be provided by the ride manager and therefore would need operators with portable mobile radios and mag mount antennas to ride along with them.  We are limited to 5 Ride Marshals, 1 for the 30 mile, 2 for the 80 mile and 2 for the 113 mile routes.    We will likely use a segmented system where each rest stop along with start/finish acts as net control for their section of the route.  This is due to radio coverage areas.
