Groton Police Chief Palma extends his great thanks to the Amateur Radio operators for this year's fine performance.

Radio operator assignments are still posted. You were a great crew; please look for mail from us next year -- we hope you will all return in 2011!

Anyone who is interested in helping us next year, please let KD1SM know. He'll find a spot for you.

Ham operators should have read the Amateur Radio Operator Briefing Sheets prior to race day. Printed copies were available at NCS on race day.

All operators will wear an orange or lime safety vest for identification purposes. The ideal vest will say "Radio" or "Radio Communications". If you have an orange cap please bring it. We will have orange vests for anyone who does not have their own.
