Posting this to spread the word for anyone interested in helping out.


To: NVARC, MARA Members, and other interested Amateur Radio Operators

I am in need of ten more radio operators for the Groton Road Race on Sunday April 24.

This is a major event for Amateur Radio in North Central
Massachusetts. Those of you who have joined us in the past years know
that the runners sincerely appreciate our presence. This event is so
large that Police Departments from several other communities come to
assist the Groton PD. Part of our role is to provide the
communications from the Groton Police to these out-of-town officers
who come to help with this event.

Contributing to the public good is one of the reasons Amateur Radio
exists. Our public service events are a key opportunity for us to
show our colors, volunteer our skills and equipment, and demonstrate
why it is in the public's interest to continue to allocate precious RF
spectrum to our the Amateur Radio Service. The Groton Road Race is a
low-stress event and a great way to gain more experience with the
public service aspect of amateur radio. Please consider joining us on
the 24th.

If you are interested in helping at these events but unsure of what is
expected of you or what equipment you may need, please ask me, Stan
KD1LE, or John KK1X.

The Squannacook River Runners and the Groton Police Department
repeatedly praise and express their appreciation for your assistance in
providing communications for this event. I do hope you will be able to
join us this year; please let me know.

Thanks and 73,
