Swallows Day Parade March 12th 2016

Here is the LINK to sign up form to volunteer for this years Parade.  It is earlier that usual and will be on Saturday 12th of March.  This year we are extending the invitation to other radio groups who have an active interest in using Amateur Radio to support public safety events and MESH node usage in those events.

We have been asked to provide more volunteers than ever before so your help is appreciated as usual. 

This event has become the largest event we support and continues to require us to improve and continue to be a volunteer group that makes it a priority to insure the safety of the guests who attend the parade and the volunteers who support it.

Types of support needed:
  • HAMS with HT's to be stationed at locations in town during the event.
  • MESH Node Planners and setup teams
  • Node owners with working cameras who want them to be deployed.
  • MESH tear down teams.
MESH'ers can assist with setup and if desired leave and return to help tear down later.

VHF HT operators can also sign up for shifts if only half day support is possible.

Please add comments if you have a limited support schedule on that day. 

Thank you in advance for your support. and call me if you have any questions.
