Amateur volunteers at Boston Marathon

| April 19, 2013

As has happened many times in years past, over 200 amateur radio operators participated in communications for the Boston Marathon on Monday 15 April 15. Unlike previous years, this year’s marathon will be remembered for the bombings that took place at the finish line. Despite this tragedy, professional first responders, medical volunteers from the American Red Cross that staffed the route and amateur radio operators performed magnificently in the face of adversity. The RSGB were delighted to learn that no amateur radio volunteers were injured on the course, including ARRL colleagues. The full story can be seen at
