Amateur Radio Public Service Events 2020 “giving back to our communities one event at a time”

ARPSE.org was established in 2007 as a central, club neutral resource for hams in Utah looking for opportunities to volunteer their services for Public Service Events.

Many Amateur Radio Operators enjoy participating in Public Service Events as it is a way for them to practice and better refine their operating skills. Not only are hams getting training but they are also giving back to their communities by volunteering their time for the various events.

Below is a listing of events for the 2020 season

If you coordinate and event and would like to get it listed on ARPSE.org, please contact Brett - KC7IIB and he will get it added.

South Jordan Parade

June 6, 2020

This annual parade will be held in June 6th and five Amateur Radio operators have once again been requested by the city to assist with communication support. Hams will be relaying lineup and script changes to announcers along the course. This is a very family friendly event that you can bring your kids along and enjoy the parade together. If you are interested in helping out, please contact Brett (brett@brettneilson.com)

Bike MS

June 27 & 28, 2020

The annual 2020 Bike MS will be held in Logan on June 27th and 28th. Hams are being requested to help with SAG support and rest stop communications. If you are interested in helping out on either or both of the days, please contact Brett (brett@brettneilson.com)

Wasatch 100

September 11 - 12, 2020

The annual Wasatch 100 is one of the premier Amateur Radio events in the state. Hams track runners in and out of each aid station and report the runner time to net control via packet and voice. As each of the aid stations is individually staffed, you will be working with other operators so no previous experience or special equipment is required. If you are interested in helping out please contact John (jmoellmer@wasatch100.com)

SoJo Marathon

October 10, 2020

This annual marathon in the South West corner of the valley is one of the last events of the season. Eight Ham Radio operators are positioned along the course and relay event progress information back to net control. This is a fairly low-key event and is a great one for people to get their feet wet with public service events. If you are interested in helping out, please contact Brett (brett@brettneilson.com)
