CAARA request for operators: we are looking for a few check points and a trail vehicle.
CAARA has a great public service team. Come out and have some fun with us. Why? You are using Amateur Radio to provide a needed public service to ensure the safety and smooth running of a public event in local communities.
We are looking for operators to staff the YuKanRun Twin Lights Half Marathon at Good Harbor Beach, October 3, 2021 at 9:00 AM. Half Marathon starts at Thatcher Road, Gloucester, MA.
While CAARA’s repeater performance has greatly improved we may still experience some difficulty with communications especially with low-powered HTs, so we’ll be looking for higher powered equipment to staff those areas.
Please let us know what type of equipment you plan to use ( Mobile; HT; ¼-Wave Mag-Mount; Rubber-Duck; etc.) so we have a better idea of where to locate you along the event course per the potential of your equipment.
The course will be open and supported by CAARA. for Four hours. Runner safety is everyone’s top priority. Local EMT crews and ambulances will be available for three hours to help.
Twin Lights Communications Team.
