Our friends down at the K1USN club are organizing an Autumn New England Parks on the Air (POTA) Day from 0000 UTC to 2359 UTC on Saturday, October 16 (8 pm Friday–7:59 pm Saturday). From their newsletter:
The goal would be to have one group/individual at each site to enable the activation of as many NE POTA’s as possible.
Officially listed POTA’s from throughout New England would be required. Maps and lists can be found here — parksontheair.com.
Since this is not a “contest”, official log submissions will not be required, but summaries would be encouraged. [NV1W comment: I think it’s polite to submit logs to the POTA website so hunters get credit.] A post-event link will be available at www.k1usn.com.
Remember that this will be a New England wide event so folks that attend Nearfest on Saturday, Oct 16th in Deerfield, NH may wish to activate a NH park on the way home.
Okay… Who is interested in jumping onboard the NE Autumn POTA event?
BTW, Bob, WC1N, has created a spreadsheet so that we can keep track of individuals/clubs as they sign on. You can sign up here — http://www.ilovepota.com/index.php.
There will be an Appalachian Trail on the air day from 1200–2100 UTC (8 am–5 pm EDT) on Saturday, October 2. More information can be found at atontheair.com. You can announce your intent to head off to the trail via the BostonARC mailing list.
The deadline for submitting Field Day entries has passed, and the following members have submitted reports as members of BARC:
Scott, K1SU (1D EMA); Mark, KB1EKN (1D EMA); Joe, N1QD (2D NH); Joe, NV1W (1E EMA); Harry, WA1GXC (1D RI).
Field Day is this weekend, June 27–28. As noted in the current issue of The SPARC, there have been some temporary changes to the rules. Most notably, if you’re operating in class D (home stations using commercial power) you can count contacts with other stations in that class for points.
When you submit your logs, please set the “Club” field to “Boston Amateur Radio Club” to ensure that your points are added to the BARC total.
Several club members will be active; listen for us!
