Volunteers Needed for Patriot Triathalon

The Patriot Triathlon is almost here! The event on June 20, 2009 consists of a 1.2 mile swim, 58 mile bike ride, and a 13.1 mile run. As always, Ham Radio operators are needed to assist with the communications of the event. The event starts early so a few operators are needed to be in position by 7AM, so early arrival on site is a must. Operators are needed mostly on the bike ride and running courses. Check out the Patriot Triathlon web page for a video of last years event.

Most assignments should only require a 5 watt HT, but a high-gain antenna and spare battery are preferred for reliability. If you plan to volunteer please contact Tony Duarte, N1XRS, at tdduarte-at-comcast-dot-net.
