Edward Scott, K9EJS is seeking licensed amateur radio volunteers to support a two-day, 100-mile trail run at Chain O’ Lakes State Park near Albion next month.

Edward is Amateur Radio Emergency Service emergency coordinator for Whitley County. He is recruiting volunteers for 65 four-hour shifts from 6 a.m. October 9 to noon October 10. The Indiana Trail 100 (IT100) event needs radio operators at 13 locations around the park.

The IT100 provides an unusual opportunity to practice the kind of 24-hour field communications a disaster might require.

For more information or to volunteer, contact Edward via email at k9ejs@arrl.net or 260-229-7479. If volunteering, include in your message the hours you are available. Edward also requests that readers share this information widely, to help him recruit as many volunteers as possible.
