Police Amateur Radio Team To Assist In Westford Apple Blossom Parade

Police Amateur Radio Team of Westford logoTerry Stader, KA8SCP writes on PART-L:

Once again, the ham radio community has been asked to assist as a communications resource for the Westford Apple Blossom Parade on Saturday, May 17, 2008.

The parade starts around 10 AM and will start near the junction of Graniteville Rd and Main St. and ending at Abbot School. Duty will be from 8:30/9:00AM until 11:00AM/noon at the latest. You will need to bring a 2 meter walkie. We need about 10-12 operators for this event.

Most volunteers will be assigned to “shadow” various members of the Parade committee. We will also be manning the Special Operations Vehicle (which may actually be a parade participant) as well as the Net Control Station at the Police station. Our actual duty will not start till about 9:00AM but we need to get into the center of town (meet in the PD/Town Hall parking lot) before the roads are closed and we need to establish our assignments by 8:30 AM or so.

Please contact me if you are interested and can assist or need more information.

Terry Stader, KA8SCP
