Welcome to the ARRL Oregon Section website
My goal is to make sure this website is always current during my term(s) as section manager. I want to have as many communication methods available as possible to hear what you in the Oregon section have to say. This is one of many ways for me to hear you. I welcome any suggestions for content. With the help of the section leadership, it will be added to continually. I look forward to working with you and am making plans to visit all the affiliated clubs in the state during my first year in office and hope to be able to participate in some of your activities. I have visited some ARES groups as well.

Also please keep in mind that this website is a work in progress and we will do our best to keep it updated with the information provided by our amateur radio community. Currently login access is limited primarily to the Oregon section cabinet. I am beginning to provide access to individuals designated by the DEC's for updating ARES-related information. As we make more features available you will be notified via the arrloregon Yahoo Group. Join the group at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/arrloregon/.

I also send regular informational emails to the yahoo group. Much of what I send will appear in the next SM report, but by being in the yahoo group, you get advance notice of the news. I also forward messages that come from the ARRL to section managers that may be of interest as well.

If you have information that you want posted or updated on this page, please send to me at ab7zq@arrl.net. If you submit news to that link, please notify me that it is there so that I can go look for it. We receive a lot of spam messages at that link.

2010 Call for Experienced Amateur Radio Operators
Calling all Operators….. Calling all Operators....

The Eagle Cap Extreme Sled Dog Race would like to invite Amateur Radio Operators to join us for the 13–16 Jan., 2010 Sled Dog Race.

During January… Volunteers and spectators gather in Joseph, Enterprise and Halfway Oregon to support the running of the Eagle Cap Extreme Sled Dog Race. This Race brings Mushers and their Teams from across the country to run through the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest, which contains the Eagle Cap Wilderness, for both a 100 and 200 mile event. The Race is a Qualifier for the legendary Races in Alaska and Canada, the Iditarod and Yukon Quest respectively.

For safety and logistic support… Checkpoints are established across the Trail with the 2010 proposed Checkpoints being Salt Creek Summit, Ollokot Campground, Fish Lake, Trinity, Cornucopia and Halfway. Headquarters for the Race are located in Joseph at two diverse locations. These Checkpoints will be staffed with Volunteers to provide Shelter, Food, Veterinarian care, Logistic support, snow-machiner transportation and of course a multi-layered Communications Network. Again this year the Checkpoint Communication modes available will be Land-line, Internet, Satellite Tracking devices (SPOT), Satellite Phone and Ham Radio at Checkpoints. We are excited to invite Amateur Radio Operators back to the event. We utilized over 40 amateurs in the 2009 race Comms in our VHF/UHF network. This was accomplished with the support of the Central Idaho Amateur Club personnel and repeater. Since the 2009 event, Scott Hampton KB7DZR, has built and installed a local VHF repeater that will have another layer of reliability to our network.

Amateur Radio at ECX…We are in the process of creating our special event Ham club and Web page for the 2010 Eagle Cap Extreme. Please follow our progress on www.eaglecapextreme.com under COMMUNITY then AMATEUR RADIO TAB.

This year… we are inviting interested Amateur Radio Operators to exercise their Net skills in an exciting winter community service setting. The Communications Volunteer will be vital to passing 3rd party traffic as well as providing support of critical situations and SAR efforts. Law Enforcement from Wallowa and Baker County, SAR Teams and US Forest Service personnel regularly participate as Volunteers and in a professional role during the Race. The Communication Volunteers are vital to providing real time information and coordination for general messaging, Logistics and in support of critical situations through various and appropriate Communication modes.
