Communications Support Information

Event Information

Plano Amateur Radio Klub and other amateurs from the area have been providing communication support for this event for over 20  years.  The primary reason for this support is to provide support to the balloonists and organizers of this event.  With this event spanning three days it requires a rather significant effort to coordinate and administer.   Operators are required in two general categories.   Field operations and recovery.  We also provide weather monitoring support and liaison to many of the Public Safety agencies supporting the event.  In the past we have also used this event to deploy new technology and techniques to validate their operational capabilities.   Click on the link below for event and signup information.
