The Canadian Ski Marathon will be held on February 11-12, 2012 and the group organizing radio communications is looking for volunteers right now. Contact Harold Hamilton, VA3UNK for more information.

Here is the information from Harold received on Thursday morning:

Subject: Looking for Amateur Radio Operators for the Canadian Ski Marathon 2012 ??? February 11-12, 2012 in Western Quebec/Ottawa Valley
From: Harold Hamilton, VA3UNK

I would appreciate it if you would help me by spreading the word throughout your local ham radio communities. We are looking for radio  operators.

Once again the Canadian Ski Marathon (CSM) is spooling up. This year is the 46th anniversary for the CSM. Radio is a few years behind that.

The CSM depends on ham radio volunteers to provide important and timely safety and logistical communication for the benefit of the skiers. The amateur radio CSM web page ( is up and running with 2012 information. The event runs between Buckingham and Lachute (eastbound) in western Quebec, snow or shine.

If you would like to volunteer this year, please email Harold VA3UNK ( Although I can't promise anything, assignment  requests are generally first-come, first-served.

Please join me the second weekend in February (11th-12th) and help make the 39th our best year yet!

Bye for now,

Harold VA3UNK
