Public Service Communications

Amateur Radio operators in and around Central Indiana volunteer their time and equipment to provide communications support to public events such as marathons, bike rides, and parades.  Public service events are a great opportunity for new and old hams alike to use their skills to give back to the community.  If you are interested in volunteering at any one of the events listed, please contact the coordinator listed for the event.
