AARC to Assist with the Carnation Parade

For the first time ever, the members of the Alliance ARC will be working the 2018 Carnation Festival Grand Parade.

The parade takes place on August 11th. Those working the parade will need to be on location and checked in with net control at 9:30 am. The parade will step off at 11am. Operators will be released as the end of the parade passes their position.

Primary communications will take place on the clubs 2 Meter repeater. Our 440 machine will serve as a backup and for overflow traffic. 147.510 simplex may be also employed if the need arises. So, please make sure before the 11th, that your radio is programmed for all club repeaters, as well as the club simplex frequency.
