“For the 22nd time, the Charles River Watershed Association (CRWA) is presenting the Run of the Charles canoe race. Hams have supported this event almost since its beginning, and it has been a [Boston Amateur Radio Club] activity since our beginning.
“Once again, [BARC] has been asked by CRWA to staff key positions along the river on Sunday, 25 April from early morning to midafternoon. The race will be held regardless of the weather.
“We are looking for a several hams who have a fair amount of experience with public service events. Your own hand-held radio with ample battery supply and a good antenna is a necessity. Operating from a car is not feasible.
“If you are interested in participating, please contact Ed Burg, N1VSJ, at email@example.com or at 978.952.6474.
