“The Misfire Alley Launch Setup” From The NAR Section Online Guide
The Misfire Alley system is an “individual responsibility” system. Everyone who wants to fly at a club function provides his own personal launcher, firing system, and firing battery; or he arranges to use the system provided by another club member.
Each participant sets up his own launch system in an area designated by the RSO. Usually the launching stations are placed in a straight line or U-shaped arrangement, with each launch pad located at least 5 meters from the next one.
A large sign adjacent to each launcher designates the launching station by number. Each participant is free to prepare his own models for flight in the area of his launching station, without interference from other participants. Since he is located at least 5 meters from the next nearest launcher, he may continue preparing his model while other rockets are being launched.
When large models are being flown, the RSO may require that all persons on the range stand and observe the flight path in order that they will be immediately aware of any malfunction, and that Rocketeers in adjacent firing stations leave their areas during the actual firing.
The RSO conducts range operations from the center table and each pad functions independently under his control. The RSO, who is centrally located and has a clear view of all participants, spectators, and launching stations, as well as the area surrounding the range, gives a range safety clearance by announcing to all participants “Pad number 5 is clear to launch.” The modeler at station 5 then arms his firing system, either he or the RSO gives an audible 5 second countdown, and the modeler launches his rocket.
