North Attleboro Santa Parade Seeks Volunteers

The Sturdy Memorial Hospital ARC will again provide communications support for the annual North Attleboro Santa Parade on November 25, 2012.

“First, let me thank those who have already signed up for the Santa Parade. If you would like to participate, but haven’t signed up as yet, there is still plenty of time,” writes SMHARC’s Bruce Alexander, KA1IG.

This year, KA1IG intends to introduce a new twist: tracking capabilities using several of the volunteers’ Kenwood D7 handhelds and other GPRS-capable radios. “This is an idea, hopefully, which will enable the parade committee to better know where gaps are happening.”

To volunteer, contact Bruce at ka1ig at verizon dot net, or phone at (508) 643-0008. KA1IG can also be found on the air on 447-975 or 147-195.
