Alert:

Building bombing on 19 April, 1995. The amateur radio community
supports the Marathon with over 80 radio operators providing public
safety and logistics communication.



 A special event operation, inaugurated in 2015, will return this year
to commemorate the Marathon and share the celebration of the “Run To
Remember” with the world-wide amateur radio community.

April till 1900Z, 24 April.  Amateur radio operators within the State
of Oklahoma are eligible to operate as a Marathon Special Event Station
under the call sign N5M.
