Arlington "Disaster Relief Trials" 9/29/18

Paul Wilson KI4PW

As mentioned during Tuesday's meeting, Arlington County is holding a Disaster Relief Trials event on Saturday, Sept 29. The goal is to distribute relief supplies and perform other tasks using bicycles, in the event of an emergency.

Is it a competition, a drill, or a simulation? Seems like all three.

Sadly, it appears no bonus points are available for hams operating "bicycle mobile." Arlington CERT members will be providing communications support on amateur frequencies.
