The US Air Force Marathon Needs You!
The 2013 US Air Force Marathon needs Amateur Radio volunteer operators for the event, which takes place September 21. Organizers need at least 25 additional operators with 2 meter and 70 centimeter capabilities who live in or can visit Southwest Ohio. Volunteer registration ends on August 31. This Amateur Radio event requires approximately 60 operators to ensure communications for runner location, logistics, and medical emergencies — from hydration stations to race officials. “This is a world-class event and is a very-high profile happening for Amateur Radio,” says USAF Marathon Amateur Radio Coordinator David Crawford, KF4KWW. “Help Amateur Radio shine. Sign up now and volunteer!” An in-depth training session will be held September 14, 6 PM, at the Beavercreek Township Fire Station No 61, 2195 Dayton Xenia Road, Beavercreek, Ohio. — Thanks to David A.
