2015 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:

  • May 16 - Boy Scout Jamboree in CT ARES Region 2
  • May 23-24, 2015 - Angel Ride. Radio communications by CT ARES - statewide.  Ride goes from Litchfield to Ashford, then to Mystic.  Contact ARES SEC Wayne Gronlund, N1CLV, to volunteer.
  • May 30, 2015 - Jim Calhoun Cancer Challenge.  Radio communications by CT ARES Region 3.  Looking for volunteers for checkpoints, SAG vehicles, motorcycle patrol, net control, scribes, runners, phone answerers.  Email to AB1GL@arrl.net.
