Some of the regular events Hamnet is involved in
Hamnet-KZN has been involved with this race for many years providing emergency communications. About 20 operators are used in this 89km race, stationed at various water tables. The operators towards the end of the race are normally kept quite busy with various requests, such as seeking medical assistance and other logistical matters.
Radio communications are vital in this race as cell phone towers are often congested during this race. The radio control is also centrally situated with access to all the other emergency services, such as the medical backup, enabling ambulances to be quickly dispatched.
This offroad cycle race roughly follows the Duzi Canoe Race route along the Duzi and Umgeni rivers. It spans two days, with an overnight stop at Inanda dam.
Communications in these valleys is trying with conventional means, and once again Hamnet is able to supply the necessary lines of communications, by using strategically located local repeaters, and simplex modes
