Hams needed for National 24 Hour Challenge, Saturday, June 17
- To all Amateur Radio Operators
The National 24 Hour Challenge (N24HC) http://www.n24hc.org is a 126 1/2 mile bicycle route
through Barry County that takes place on the Saturday before Fathers Day that attracts about
500 riders plus their support crews. Amateur Radio communications is an important part of
the logistics of this annual event taking place this year on June 17.
As I type this, the following communications positions are in need of volunteers:
LEAD CAR (Vehicle and driver supplied) 7:30AM to 1:45PM - Reports to net control location of
lead vehicle and rider.
BROOM 2 (Vehicle and driver supplied) 11AM to 6PM - Reports to net control location of
vehicle following last riders, picking up riders and bikes of those unable to complete the
course, and other information.
The event coordinators provide shirts, limited refreshments, and Friday evening spaghetti
dinner. Please contact the Ham Radio Communications Director if you are willing to help.
