Bike MS Wild West Ride 2011 July 23rd and 24th

For us Amateur Radio operators, the Bike MS Wild West Ride serves two purposes. First and foremost it is a fun time to get together and give back to the community. We always have a lot of fun with this event each year. Second, and also equally important, it is practice for an actual emergency situation where Amateur Radio operators would be called upon to provide emergency communications. For more information, visit the Event’s Website

Enjoy the weekend and put your hobby to a good use for a wonderful cause. Helping with the Bike MS Wild West Ride is where the true spirit of amateur radio is. Let’s keep active with public service events and keep amateur radio alive and useful!

Update 6/17/2011: The MS Society is providing all of their own SAG vehicles and drivers due to liabilities this year. However, we would still like to place a communicator in each of their vehicles if possible. A 70cm HT and a mag mount antenna will be sufficient.

Llano Estacado Challenge June 18-19, 2011

SHORT NOTICE! HAM RADIO ASSISTANCE IS REQUESTED…

 

The Crown of Texas Arabian Horse Club is holding its annual Llano Estacado Challenge horse endurance race this coming Saturday and Sunday, June 18th & 19th, at Plum Creek recreation area North of Amarillo. The horse club is requesting communications assistance from the local amateur radio community to coordinate the race and provide emergency communications as necessary. We have assisted with this interesting event for many years now and it is an excellent means of practicing our emergency communications skills in the field.

 

The horse club provides excellent campfire meals. Bring your own water jug, sunscreen, and camping gear if you intend to spend the night. A shovel and a roll of your favorite toilet paper would also be a good idea. You’ll need at least a 35 watt mobile vhf transceiver.

 

Please call Adair Winter, KD5DYP, to volunteer to help with this fun event 806 231-7180
