The 100 Acre Wood will again use a system of linked repeaters. These linked repeaters pass all radio traffic back and forth across all of the repeaters within the system – this means that the users won’t have to worry about net control being on a different repeater. There will be more radio traffic, so it is especially important to keep all messages short and to the point. More information will be provided in communications document(s) provided to you soon.
What to bring to the woods – For stage workers:
- Food, snacks, & something to drink (non-alcoholic)
- Warm and waterproof clothing and boots. Plan for warm to cold, rain or snow.
- Flashlights and extra batteries

- Gas. Fill your vehicle before leaving Salem
