Amateur (HAM) radio volunteers brought together by our desire to support public service events throughout the state of Utah
UtahSAG is an informal association of Amateur (HAM) radio volunteers who provide support services for charity events such as The Tour de Cure (American Diabetes Association), Cycle for Life (The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation), The Summit Challenge (The National Ability Center), Ride 4 Education/Ride 4 Respect (Utah School Employees Association), Ride with the Angels (Angel Hands), Scouting for Food (Utah Food Bank) . In addition to these charity events we also support public century bicycle rides that make donations to charity organizations such as all of the rides (Gran Fondo Salt Lake, Giro Donna, Bear Lake Monster etc.) put on by Extra Mile Racing (Team Kid Courage), Front Runner Century (Chron's and Colitis Foundation as well as Air Force and Navy charities), The Wildflower Pedalfest (Utah Bicycle Collective), The Huntsman 140 (Huntsman Cancer Institute), Little Red Riding Hood (Huntsman Cancer Institute) and other public events such as marathons, parades and community holiday ceremonies.
In addition, UtahSAG makes it's volunteers and equipment available to local public service and community organizations such as police and fire departments, when requested, in the event of public emergencies as well as the National Weather Service of Utah to provide weather information from around the state during emergency weather conditions.
By supporting these events UtahSAG provides services to around 4,000 event participants each year. SAG services include transportation, food and water and general care so that the participants can enjoy the event they are participating in.

Skywarn Recognition Day
National Weather Service Office
2242 W North Temple, Salt Lake City, UT
ARRL in cooperation with NOAA and the National Weather Service presents Skywarn Recognition Day. This is a 24 hour HAM radio event where we attempt to contact as many weather station offices around the country as we can.
We will be utilizing as many bands as possible (at least 80 Meter through 70 Centimeter) and as many modes as possible (AM, SSB, FM, CW, IRLP, EchoLink, PSK31, C4FM etc).
We will need to have at least 3 operators per 3 hour shift with at least one of those operators holding their Extra license. After you register you will receive an email letting you know which shifts still need to be covered and asking which you would like to work.
Setup will be on Friday December 1 from 1:00 PM until the event starts at 5:00 PM. We will need to have 4 - 8 folks to get everything set up. If you have equipment you can bring, primarily HF, let us know when we send you the confirmation email asking what shift you would like. Teardown will be on Saturday December 2 immediately following the event at 5:00 PM until everything is packed up. We expect to need 4 - 8 folks for that as well.
