On behalf of all of the teams, I want to thank you for your interest in volunteering for Baker to Vegas Communications.  I hope you can participate in this event.  A list of the types of assignments at each stage can be found at this link:   The application to work as a ham can also be found on the above page.  Complete the application and email it to Margie Hoffman at Be sure to let her know you want to work at Stage 8 or any other stage that may interest you.

Jim Stoker AG6EF is the Lead Ham at Stage 8 and will make the assignments.  Send an email to Jim at with your email address and telephone number.  He will being sending out a group email soon.  Jim is a terrific ham and a very ice guy. I guarantee that you will enjoy working with him and the other hams.  Working together, Stage 8 is a great team of hams, Good Sam volunteers and sworn peace officer volunteers and this stage runs smooth as silk.

If you plan on camping at Stage 8, plan on arriving early in the morning on the 23rd.  Do not set up camp until the Good Sam Crew arrives because you may end up being relocated.  There is a Stage Setup Plan that must be adhered to, to facilitate the smooth and safe operation of the stage.   There is plenty of room for RV’s and tents.  Plan for ALL kinds of weather no matter what the weather guessers predict.  If you’re not planning on camping, you should have no trouble getting a hotel in Pahrump on Saturday night.  Email me at if you have any questions.
