Calendar

This calendar lists upcoming club events and other events of interest to members and Boston-area hams.

For more contest information see the ARRL Contest Calendar and WA7BNM’s Contest Calendar. For information on upcoming hamfests and conventions, see the search page on the ARRL website.

Not listed (due to frequency) is the twice-weekly SST (Slow Speed Test) run by our friends at the K1USN club. This is a short, relaxed CW contest with a maximum speed of 20 wpm. SSTs are held on Fridays at 20:00–21:00 UTC and Mondays at 00:00–01:00 UTC (Sunday night Eastern time).

Note: due to uncertainty surrounding responses to the coronavirus, always double-check before getting in the car or boarding the T to attend an event.
