Brian Elliott, N9JPX, said: “I just got a request from Brian Holzhausen at DINO for amateur radio operators to provide communications assistance for the Tecumseh Trail Challenge this Saturday, October 24th at Yellowwood Lake in Brown County.

They will have three aid stations this year & be running laps around the lake instead of their usual route down from Morgan/Monroe. I know several of you already have plans for this Saturday (as do I) & with only a few days before the event, it's kinda short notice but if you are available to assist them, let me know & I will relay the info back to Brian at DINO & they will forward more information.  73,”

If you would like to help, please call Brian’s cell at 765-346-1123.
