Greetings ARES members and NET team ARO’S,
Multnomah County ARES has been asked to provide radio communications for the MS Walk again this year.
This charity walk will have on the order of 2000 participants and hundreds of volunteers. It will be held on a circuit beginning and ending at Pioneer Courthouse Square and will use Waterfront Park and the Eastside Esplanade. Multnomah County ARES and other amateur radio volunteers will be providing communications and route monitoring support between the field and event coordinators.
The event will take place April 19th from approx. 8:30 AM to 1:00 PM.
There are many positions available from rest stop positions to roving monitors and we will be rotating net control operators to give those of you who want some experience the opportunity to do so.
This is a great opportunity to gain some experience for new hams and we would be happy to buddy you up with our more experienced operators. Just let us know what you are comfortable with.
