As of midday Friday, April 27, communications help was still needed for the Glacial Esker 40 ultramarathon at Chain O Lakes State Park near Albion tomorrow, April 28. Emergency coordinator Dan Ward, N9WLW informed advised that approximately two dozen 2.5-hour ham radio shifts remain open between 6 a.m. and late afternoon!
This is a great way to spend some time in a lovely state park while helping to assure the safety of runners. It’s also a good opportunity to practice the kind of tactical communications we’ll use in support of weather and other emergencies.
If you can help, please contact Dan at firstname.lastname@example.org. And please share this information, to help drum up more volunteers!
