Boston Marathon Amateur Radio

VOLUNTEER JOB DESCRIPTIONS

  • Amateur Radio volunteer opportunities exist along the entire event from the Start Area in Hopkinton to the Finish Area in Boston as well as in each of the 6 cities and towns in between!
  • This group of volunteers are communications specialists and assist in the transfer of both emergency and routine messages during the race. An FCC Amateur Radio license is required to act as an Amateur Radio Volunteer, much like you need a driver’s license to operate a motor vehicle. If you are not already licensed and are interested in getting licensed reach out to us at contact@HamRadioBoston.org. There are certain volunteer jobs that do not require (although encourage) an FCC Amateur Radio license. Our service is made effective as it focuses upon the clarity, efficiency and accuracy of the communications links we provide. Volunteers who have public safety communications experience are among those so qualified. Please write contact@HamRadioBoston.org to see if you qualify.
