Public Service Events

Beginning in early spring each year and continuing into early winter many ham radio operators become involved in doing radio team communications to support various public service events. The events include long distance bike rides, bike races, running races, walkathons, a March for Babies, a half marathon, a Mt Diablo Trail Ride, and local city parades.

The locations include beautiful scenic areas such as nearby regional and wilderness areas, municipal trails and parks around East Bay region. Some of the agencies and causes that ham radio operators helped are: Children's Hospital of Oakland, the MS Society, the March of Dimes, Meals on Wheels, and Save Mt. Diablo.
