Pumpkin Patrol 2021 - Syracuse

 


The Liverpool Amateur Repeater Club (LARC), the Amateur Radio community and the New York State Police (Troop T) are again pleased to sponsor the 2021 Pumpkin Patrol.

This is a two night public service event to be held on October 30th and 31st from 19:00 to 21:00
hours. The chairman is seeking Amateur Radio Operators who can dedicate one or both evenings.
Operators are encouraged to work in pairs and non-ham friends, family or pets are encouraged to
accompany them. Teams will operate from their vehicles (no walking or standing required) and
repeater coverage (146.31/91) is generally okay for handheld use although mobile units are
encouraged.

If you are interested in participating for the Onondaga County portion of this event, please
contact Al May, WA2KFV at pumpkinpatrollarc@gmail.com or by phone at
315-633-9280. Please specify your availability for one night or two and provide a contact e-mail and
phone number. If you have a location preference, please let me know when you register,
assignments are made on a first-come, first served basis with consideration as to where you live and
what bridge you covered in the past.

Most upstate NY counties along the NYS Thruway are also participating in this event.
