Exclamation 
Fishbien/YMCA Community Day and ROAD RACE... and MORE.
http://www.wallingfordymca.org/

WE are just one 1 WEEK away from the Wallingford YMCA/Fishbien 5K Road Run/Walk and we NEED YOUR HELP.
This is a quick, fun Public Service Event (PSE) and a great way to get some low stress experience in the field.

WE ARE SHORT BY 2 volunteers. (Ouch!)
Will you come and help provide communications at this event?

Date: Saturday, Sept. 17
Place: Wallingford YMCA
Hours: 7:30 am - 11 am

Right now, my Volunteer List for this PSE is showing the following folks:
1. Steve - KC1SA

BENEFITS
- Coffee and Donuts. (LOL!)
- Sharpen your Communications Skills
- Show your ARES TEAM spirit by joining us.
- Get to meet other ARES Team members
- Provide a visible and valuable service to the Wallingford community.

Bring your VHF/UHF "Go Box".
Past experience has shown that, due to the local topography, a plain stock vanilla 5 watt HT with its original factory antenna cannot be relied upon to get the job done at many locations on the Course.

Suggested Equipment Options:
1) An HT with an aftermarket BIGGER/"Betterer" ANTENNA.
2) An HT with a mag mount antenna on the vehicle
3) A mobile radio and antenna on the vehicle (fixed or mag mount).
4) Other?

DRESS CODE: ARES VESTS and CAPS.
- You NEED to be able to be SEEN and FOUND by the Public quickly.
Available at ARRL website.
