Hello All -

Community support is an important part of amateur radio.

The SFARC seeks volunteers to provide 2 meter communications for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's Cycle for Life event on Sunday, October 7, 2018.

Net Control will be on the grounds of Loomis Basin Brewery, with four rest stops spread throughout Lincoln, Granite Bay, and Newcastle. If staffing permits, we will ride with up to three SAG vehicles.

This is a great opportunity to use our 2 meter gear in field conditions and spend time with fellow club members. And hopefully the autumn weather will be pleasant!

Please let me know if you want to volunteer for this community event. If you're interested in any particular position, I've added information below for your review.
