Volunteer Operators Needed for Two June Events

Ham radio operators are needed in support of the 45th annual Scandinavian Festival at CLU on June 4th and 5th. This is a great opportunity for a ham who may be a little tentative about volunteering for an event. Hams who have never done an event will be joined by experienced “Elmers” who want to help.

The event will have three, two-person roving groups and a two-person Net Control to provide help with lost children and other small issues. This will give operators practice with proper net operation and  procedures. It’s all on simplex frequencies so training is easy. There are two, four to five hour shifts for each day of the festival. You can do one shift or two shifts in one day.  If you do a day with two shifts, you will have time for an authentic Scandinavian lunch! If you are interested in volunteering, please email Zak Cohen at N6PK@arrl.net.

On June 5th operators are needed for a traditional charity event; helping with the Love Run in Thousand Oaks.  This includes a half marathon, 5K and 10K races.  There will be four aid stations and two or three SAG wagons.  It is a fun event that local hams have been helping with for several years.  If you’d like to volunteer, please email Zak Cohen at N6PK@arrl.net.
