    Default NEAR-Fest XX October 14 & 15, 2016 NEAR-Fest is NOT Optional!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Who is going to NEAR-Fest XX Friday and Saturday, October 14th & 15th 2016 at the Deerfield Fairgrounds???

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

    Anyways...
    NEAR-Fest XX http://near-fest.com is Friday and Saturday.

    Below is this year's official frequency list.


    The W1ASS Epsom NH repeater is on the air and better than ever. Still on 443.850. Its 88.5 both in and out. Nevertheless, in addition, it is now mixed mode P25 with a NAC of 353 This is fantastic news as this repeater reaches way down into Massachusetts 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 Epsom please listen to mixed mode and yield to analog use.

    I think you will be quite cold and lonely if you show up there in November.
    Correct date is October 14 & 15, 2016

    It was nice to see John and Eric up there today. Weather was nice, I sold a lot of my "junk", and had a good day. Hope you guys stay warm and have a good time tonight.
    We're peace loving people, we're not hunting trouble, but if trouble should find us, we'll stand up and fight.

    Had a great time as always, even came away with the grand prize today! Not one drop of rain either day. Got a bit cold overnight, but with the small electric heater in my tent, that was not an issue at all. Great seeing everyone who I ran into, as always.

    Thanks for catching that. Just sent Mr. Mike W1RC an email to have that fixed...
