Two public upcoming service events this spring will be the Five Points of Life marathon on Sunday, February 15th, and the March for Babies walk on Saturday, March 21st.
Amateur radio operators provide communications for both events, at the
start/finish line and at water and medical stations along the routes.
Any amateur can assist, the requirements are a two-meter radio and a
willingness to help.
There are also positions for net control operators and ride-along
communicators with event vehicles. A handy-talky with a good antenna and
an extra battery are the basic gear. We'll use the GARS repeater, so
most areas are easily reached by a hand held radio.
Time commitments range from two to five hours, depending on the location
and how early you start. I will be coordinating amateur radio volunteers
for both events. Please let me know if you'd like more information, or
to sign up for the events.
