Today, local hams from around the region supported the annual Lighthouse to Lighthouse race in Long Island sound off Norwalk’s Shady Beach. This event raises fund for the Achilles foundation which helps those with disabilities participate in mainstream running races.
Many thanks, in no particular order, to: Toy K1WYQ, Bill WG1HM, Greg KC1CRT, Lisa KC1YL, Marilyn KB1YYO, Marty Ka1WBN, Tom KD1UL, and Paul W1PPL. Operators were stationed at the beach, on Sheffield Island, on three race support boats and the Coast Guard Auxiliary tower.
We used a go-kit with a Yaesu FT-8800 and a Sea Ranger marine radio. Antennas were an Ed Fong, and a wide band mag mount on a pie plate.
Thanks for helping, Paul WB2JVB
