Local volunteers looking to boost their rally skillset are invited to check out the Orchard City Amateur Radio Club’s website for details on their upcoming course.
Radio operators are always in high demand at all rally events, and Big White is no exception. In addition to gaining a new skill and increasing event safety, you get to follow the event when it isn’t happening right in front of you, and get the best viewing points and photo opportunities.
Non-locals wishing to get their radio licenses can purchase the study materials or make use of online resources, and then challenge the exam through one of OCARC’s examiners or another club. American volunteers are encouraged to inquire through their local amateur radio club or the American Radio Relay League.
OCARC has been a supporter of Big White Winter Rally since it’s inception in 2009 and has made personnel and equipment – including multiple repeaters – available to us each year.
