All licensed amateur radio operators on Hawaii Island are invited to volunteer their time for the 18 March 2018 Hilo Marathon.  Hams will be assigned to positions along the 26.2-mile course which extends into Keaukaha and up the North Hilo coastline from the start/finish line near the canoe hale on the Hilo Bayfront.  With net control at Onekahakaha Park, the radio volunteers will ensure coordination between aid stations and race officials, and help with health and safety issues when needed. For more information, please call WH6EXS at 1-443-492-9272 or send a message to the PERC (Puna Emergency Radio Club) Facebook page:  @KH6PRC).
