The State of Illinois has issued an official Proclamation that June 2022 is Amateur Radio Month in Illinois.
On Sunday May 15th, volunteers from the Schaumburg Amateur Radio Club got up nice and early to help provide radio communication support at the 2022 Chicagoland Marathon, held at Busse Woods.
Quoting from our club president, John Zietlow K9WIC;
“This past weekend, twenty-four hams provided medical communications for the Chicagoland Marathon in Busse Woods. We helped a half-dozen runners that need help back to the finish line.
