Pasadena, April 20, 2024.  

ARES LAX Northeast supported the 2024 Walk for Kids!  

Our operators provided communications for the First Aid Station, the three Hydration Stations, Tail End Charlie and the Rover. Working closely with our Walk for Kids partners and the Pasadena Fire Department EMT Team we provided  situational awareness for the 3 mile route. Our Tail End Charlie Team swept the route watching out for any walkers who might be struggling.

LAXNORTHEAST overcame the propagation challenges posed by the Rose Bowl by using a 2m/70cm crossband repeater and a de-linked DARN repeater.  

👏🏻 We were especially thrilled to welcome two new and one soon to be amateur radio operators to the event support team!
