Hawaii Amateur Radio operators are once again offering their communications expertise to support the 33rd Annual Great Aloha Run in Honolulu on 20 February 2017.

The Great Aloha Run has been recognized as one of the top “100 Great Road Races” by “Runner’s World Magazine.”  Hawaii radio amateurs will be in the thick of things helping to maintain communications with the command center,  starting line, four aid stations, the Aloha Stadium entrance, the North Tunnel entrance, Stadium Ring Road, and the main medical facility on the stadium floor.

In this article, Stacy Holbrook (KH6OWL) explains who’s involved and what the communications requirements are–a tremendous, demanding task that Hawaii radio amateurs have done well in the past.

If you would like to help with communications support, please call Jona at 808-753-5046 or contact her via email–jfunakura@gmail.com.
