First Responders, Amateur Radio Operators, and members of the public interested in becoming SKYWARN® weather spotters; and current spotters who wish to refresh their skills; are encouraged to save the date for one of the three training opportunities to be offered in the Fargo/Moorhead area during 2019.
Radio Operators are needed to provide public service communication support for the 2018 Jungle Bell Run on Saturday, December 1st.
Operators will be stationed along the course and should meet at the Courts Plus fireplace at 8:15 AM to obtain their assignments. The race starts at 9:00 AM.
The Jingle Bell Run is an excellent opportunity for new Amateur Radio Operators to familiarize themselves with event support net operations in a relaxed setting.
