2020 Ohio Winter Rally

The Ohio Winter Rally has returned and radio volunteers are needed. At this time I am unsure what the responsibilities are, but this is usually a neat event to work. It consists of a timed route that the participants do not know ahead of time. They are give a list of turns and distances that they follow. They are supposed to make it between checkpoints as close to a specified time as possible. If the roads are bad due to snow it gets even more interesting.

If you are able to help out, please register on the Geauga Emergency Amateur Radio Service (GEARS) website You may contact Pat N8ONI or Dave KD8TWG for more details.

Skywarn Spotter Training Postponed

Due to another staffing shortage, the NWS Cleveland office will not be holding any in person Skywarn Spotter Training sessions during spring 2020. They are currently exploring the possibility of other training options.

Please stay tuned to their website for updates.

If you would like to learn more about the role amateur radio plays in Skywarn in the Cleveland area, please consider attending the February LEARA meeting on Tuesday, February 25. Dinner is served at 6:30 PM and the meeting begins at 7:30 PM. Please visit for more information and to make the required dinner reservation.

Cleveland Marathon

As always, I am looking for a lot of help for the Cleveland Marathon May 16 and 17. Yes, it's unfortunately on Hamvention weekend as usual and no, they aren't going to change the date of the marathon just because of that (yes people have suggested that. Seriously)

We normally need about 10 people to work the 5k on Saturday ending about noon and about 40 to work the actual Marathon on Sunday ending about 3p. If you are available to help, please sign up. If you need to leave early, that usually is not a problem so please don't be afraid to ask. Please sign up here.

As always, our event calendar is quite full and more events will be added as they are confirmed. Please check the calendar link below often and sign up when able.
