Public Service & Ham Events (see blog below)

Amateur radio operators participate in many events throughout the year, usually as part of a network, controlled by a central dispatcher "net control".

They also can be emissaries of the hobby, such as at community fairs and exhibitions.

Radio operators interested in participating in any of these, please monitor the CARA Events Calendar for news of upcoming events.

Equipment required for these events generally include a personal vehicle, a dual channel dual band cross band (VHF/UHF) 50 Watt mobile, and a dual band dual channel (VHF/UHF) 5 Watt handheld.

    The Banff to Jasper Relay is a running relay marathon from Banff to Jasper done in ~10 mile segments.   The relay itself is split in half so that the entire event can be completed during the daylight.  CARA has traditionally supported the 'South' portion from Castle Junction up to the Saskatchewan River Crossing.

    The date is Saturday June 4th, 2022
