    Default NEAR-Fest is not optional!! NEAR-Fest XVIII Friday and Saturday Oct 16 & 17th

    Who is going to NEAR-Fest XVIII Friday and Saturday May Oct 16 & 17th at the Deerfield Fairgrounds???

    As I always remind people who say that can't go..... NEAR-Fest is not optional!!

    NEAR-Fest XVIII is this Friday and Saturday.

    Below is this years official frequency list for all attending the Admission Fee is only 5$ this time.

    The W1ASS Epson NH repeater is on the air and better than ever. Still on 443.850. Its 88.5 both in and out. However in addition it is now mixed mode P25 with a NAC of 353 This is fantastic news as this repeater reaches way down into Massachucetts and is full quieting portable on the fairgrounds. I always tell folks if you add one channel to your radio for NEAR-Fest this should be it.
    P25 folks this is the busiest couple of days for Epson please listen mixed mode and yield to analog use.

    Anyways the rest of the official freq list for Fall of 2015

    A little rain on Friday morning, and cool temperatures, but it was still another great event! Good seeing those that I saw, as always.
