    Default NEAR-Fest XIX April 29 & 30, 2016 NEAR-Fest is NOT Optional!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Who is going to NEAR-Fest XIX Friday and Saturday April 29th & 30th 2016 at the Deerfield Fairgrounds???

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

    Anyways...
    NEAR-Fest XIX http://near-fest.com is 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.

    I'm going to try to get there but it'll be as a passenger if so, so not sure what day yet. My truck is having some front end issues that preclude me from taking it on a road trip. Hopefully it'll work out; I'd like to get back, it's been a while.
