Maple Ridge Run
The TRO will provide communications support for the Maple Ridge Run.
The runs begin at 0800 and are usually concluded by or before 1200.
Communications volunteers need to arrive at 0700.  You can't be late or the streets will be blocked.


We will gather starting at 7am near the start line at 15th and Madison Ave, look for the yellow Nissan Xterra with amber flashing lights. Safety Briefing will be no later than 730am.
Event route map: http://files.www.fleetfeettulsa.com/races/2016-maple-ridge/OK16020KH-2016-MapleRidge5K.pdf
Please have the 146.88 repeater programmed for your radio. Would be ideal to have all three PL tones ready. We'll use 146.55 simplex as backup.
Assignments will be made as volunteers arrive and checkin at the radio command post. The command post will be at my vehicle (look for the yellow Nissan Xterra with amber flashing lights).
Thank you for your support!

10 or 11 operators are needed.  Mostly handy talkies for communications.
Volunteer for some fun, communications practice and some ham fellowship.
