On Sunday April 22, 2018 the annual Cheshire MS walk will take place starting at Cheshire High school.


Every year the MARC/ARES provides communications for the non profit charity event, and our services have been requested again for 2018. We need volunteer communicators to staff the water stations, straggler bus, and other points along the route.

Race registration is at 9 AM and the walk starts at 10. Most everyone secures before noon.

Operators are expected to be on scene by 8 AM for assignment and deployment. Please bring a 2 meter HT with a decent antenna and/or a 2 meter mobile. Douglas WA1SFH has volunteered to be net control again from the high school cafeteria.

If you have a yellow reflective ARES vest, please bring it. Tactical call signs will be used (example: Base, this is water station one). Operations with be on the 147.36 club repeater.

This is a fun event with over 2000 participants in the walk in 2017.

If you can help out, see me at the next club meeting, or reply here or to my email: kb1jl@outlook.com.
