DRT PDX Event Communications

Multnomah County ARES is proud to provide radio communications services for the Disaster Relief Trials PDX for the sixth year in a row. This exciting event is a mixture of bike race, disaster relief exercise, and emergency preparedness fair.

The event takes place in Portland on Sunday, October 22 from approximately 08:00 to 17:00.

We will need radio operators for net control and logging in the communications trailer, and reporting rider arrival times from the checkpoints. A 2 meter handheld with two strong batteries is sufficient for most assignments.
