Salt Lake County ARES will be holding an exercise on August 29 from 10am-2pm. We will be concentrating on data transmission. Below you will find links to the exercise program. It is spelled out and we hope that we can get all the local clubs in Salt Lake County to participate. We also welcome any individual to participate. If some of the mode of data transmission you are not familiar with, we have recorded classes that we have put on and they can be viewed at Salt Lake County ARES You Tube channel. We have included ICS form 205 with the radio frequencies, the ICS form 214 for you to fill out, and the items that you will be able to complete toward your AUXCOM certification.

We hope to have you participate. Please pass this along to anyone that you think would be interested.

Salt Lake City Marathon

posted Jan 31, 2014, 4:21 PM by Brad Rupp

The Salt Lake City Marathon is coming up on April 19th.  Your support is being requested for the 2014 Marathon. 

There are some exciting changes in the course this year.  The Start, as is tradition, will be at the University of Utah. But, the finish will be at Washington and Library Square downtown.  The course will head north out of the U. through Federal Heights, then head south through Memory Grove and downtown, it continues south to 4500 south before it turns north again towards the finish line.  There are some minor details regarding the course that have not be finalized. You will be provided with an official map as soon as it is available.

As you can see from this brief description it is quite different and so there will be changes to aid station and command center locations.  We will be supporting the same events; Full Marathon, Half Marathon and Bike Tour.  We are expecting to need the same level of support as in the past, between 50 to 60 Hams.

The registration link, below, is active.

Please reserve the 19th of April and  register as a Ham Radio volunteer for the 2014 Salt Lake City Marathon by following the link below.
