Adirondack Balloon Festival 2013

We have not been asked to participate in festival operations this year, however there will be a lot of visitors to the area, many of which will be radio operators (pilots, chase crews, festival goers). They will be using a variety of radio services including Aviation, Amateur, GMRS/FRS, MURS, and CB. We have sent information about our repeater network to the festival coordinators. If you can, please respond to any requests for info, signal checks, help, etc. whenever possible and, of course, welcome them to the area.
