Please RSVP by the BCARA November meeting.

BCARA continues its support of local community events

W8MRL spent Saturday, October 11 with the Executive Director of the Queen Bee Marathon in Cincinnati.  Rob, along with over 2 dozen other amateur radio operators from the area provided a communications network for the inaugural 13.1 mile Queen Bee Marathon.  4,000 runners (nearly all women, hence the name) participated.  The amateur radio operators, deployed along the course, provided a vital communications link to handle reporting real time information regarding injuries, course hazards and logistical challenges to the Race Directors, Executive Director and the Medical Team.



If you missed BCARA's participation in the Ohio QSO party you missed a great time.  17 members and 2 guests attended the event.  As we had decided early on, this year wasn't going to be a hard core contesting format.  That made for a great social and on-the-air event.  

It looks like we will be in the top ten for the second year in a row for the multi-operator class.
