Spring is here and my radio communcations duties are starting to ramp up. I will be doing radio for the Rex-Lee Run and Scouting for Food in March and the Sage Riders Motorcycle race in April.
A few weeks ago I was asked to be the Radio Operation Manager for the ARRL Field Day June 28-29. I know's it's Jana's birthday, but sh can have a party with a bunch of Nerds at the field day location. I am in charge of all of the promotion for this event and getting press releases and city officials to attend. I am not sure what city will be hosting the event this year, but I plan on getting alot of people to attend. You can even talk on the radio there without having your HAM license. (You'll be operating under my station ID)
This morning I was asked to be the Assistant Communications Coordinator for the 2008 Freedom Festival. I'm not sure what I will be in totally doing, but most likely it will be making sure we have sufficient radio operators for the Pre-Parade, Grand Parade and Fireworks also coordinating with Police and Ambulance so we are covered in the event there is an emergency.
Being a Nerd is alot of hard work, but can be rewarding and fun too!
