This is the first call for radio operators for the Annapolis 10 Miler to be held on Sunday, 30 August. We need operators! If you’ve worked the race in the past and would like the same assignment please let me know when you sign up. This is an intense but short race. The starting time is 07:00 and Operators will need to be on station at various times beginning at 05:00 for Net Control but no later than 06:45 depending on the station.

BTW, when you sign up please give me your shirt size. I DO NOT KNOW IF THERE WILL BE SHIRTS however, I like to be prepared.

Thanks in advance.
