Every year in June in Richmond, VA, 40+ ham radio operators work together to help support one of Virginia’s largest public service events: over 1500 athletes, venues staged in three counties and a small city of support personnel, including parents, trainers and logistics staff. This is a two day event and the days are long but we know what you get out of this event makes it all worth while!
