Pan Ohio Hope Ride – July 29
The Pan Ohio Hope Ride (benefits American Cancer Society) is coming to town again. On +Sunday, July 29, the ride will start in Clark County and traverse Greene County.
It will then wind through Warren and Hamilton Counties, and that’s the focus of this message…
This year, there will be ham radio operators riding with the ride coordinator (Paul Purdy) and co-coordinator (Steve Levine). The ride staff would like to leverage ham radio for coordination of supplies (and possible transportation requests), by having us place an operator (or more than one, if people would like to split the day) at each of the following locations:
Corwin Peddler (7a-1230p) 69 S. Main St. / Corwin
Morrow “Train Station” (830a-130p) 205 W. Pike St. / Morrow
Foster Park (10a-3p) 7837 Old 3C Highway / Foster
Dogwood Park (1030a-4p) Wooster Pk between Oak and Plainville, Mariemont
Eden Park “overlook” (11a-4p) Victory Parkway / Cincinnati
(this is the same as Mile 7 of the Flying Pig)
More volunteers can be put to work, but this is the “minimum” commitment we’re being asked to fill. In a ham community this large, I hope we can find 5 people (or more if people would like to split the shifts.)
Frequency plan for the day, to be announced soon. (We welcome suggestions on this too.)
*Please* contact me to discuss, and *please* distribute on e-mail lists, club nets, social media, etc. Thanks for your consideration!

W8MRL has offered to be available for “whatever” — he lives closest to
Morrow location so he will go there first.
Additional volunteers for “stuff happens” situations are welcome, for
whatever hours you choose to be available (please let me know what those
Corwin — monitor 147.165+ (for activity north)
ALL — monitor 147.24+/442.7+ (PL 123, and they should be linked)
This is subject to change. The “main” Warren County repeater is running
with a very limited profile right now, so we have to look at alternatives.
Updates to follow…
