One of the items brought up at this evening’s CARS meeting was providing communications support for the Charleston Cystic Fibrosis Cycle for Life event, coming up on October 4, 2014.
CARS members provided some support for the event last year, but I wasn’t able to make it. This year, I signed up to help out. I’m told there’s a 30 mile course, and a 60 mile course out in the Megget/Hollywood area where there isn’t a lot of cell phone coverage, so amateur radio comm support comes in very handy.
This will be the second event I’ve helped out with, and I’m looking forward to it.
If you’d like to help out with comm support, let me know and I’ll put you in touch with the right people.
