2013 Public Service Events, communications provided by NARL
The Newington Amateur Radio League (NARL) provides as a public service, free of charge, volunteers for communications. In the recent past, we have provided comms for charity walks and races, river regattas, bike and motorcycle rides, outdoor events and parades.
Our volunteers are trained communicators with their own radios who can assist anyone coping with large crowds, cell phone "dead zones", or busy organization leaders who don't have enough hands or ears to deal with the flood of messages they receive and send during a large event.
Non-NARL ham related:
- October 5, 2014 - Jim Calhoun Cancer Challenge, Farmington - see AB1GL to volunteer
- October 11 2014 - Hartford Marathon - see AB1LZ to volunteer
For details on other events, contact Armando Landrian, KB1PRP@arrl.net.
