OUR OWN KA7CVT AT WINTER OLYMPICS

Karen Schessler, KA7CVT, has the privilege of going to the Winter Olympics in Utah during the month of February. She was assigned to work as a 911 dispatcher with some shifts being at Soldier Hollow and some shifts at the Wasatch County Sheriff’s Office dispatch center. Soldier Hollow is where the Biatholon, cross country and Nordic Combined events were being held.

 

It not only was an experience of a life time but Karen has exchanged e-mails with Bonnie, N7ZPM since. Bonnie and her husband Norm, N7ZOI volunteered to help at the Olympics and then the Paralympics. They not only had their hand helds to keep in touch with local hams but were monitoring the 21 closed circuit cameras set up around Soldier Hollow. Because they live near Heber City, they seem to know every nook and cranny of Soldier Hollow. There were also operators at the EOC in Wasatch County.

 

Over all it was a very exciting experience and one Karen will never forget.

 

FROM THE EDITOR: Congratulations to Karen and thank you for sharing your wonderful experience.
