Re: IFX

It's called IF eXchange. It's supposed to work in theory to move the IF frequency if you're receiving a birdie, or an IF "hit" (like here, I would get the Weather Service transmissions on 162.55, and it would image 5KHz from the Portland Jetport ground frequency). Some people say it works, others sa...

Re: NEAR-Fest XXVIII has been cancelled.

Angelino's actually wasn't at NEARFest for the first time last fall. There were rumors that there were some health issues, but I'm not completely sure. Actually, it was a conflict with the Sandwich Fair. It happened last year to fall on the same weekend as Deerfield. Carroll had to do the fair, or ...

Re: NEAR-Fest XXVIII has been cancelled.

This is the stuff that sucks the most about Covid-19...other than people dying of course. While we can soldier on and if we have the means purchase equipment over the internet, this poor guy makes a living out of carting that trailer around and selling food out of it, and his making a living has li...

Re: NEAR-Fest XXVIII has been cancelled.

Carroll Hazen that runs Angelino's Sausage House trailer at the hamfest told me back in May when I saw him that he had a feeling this would get cancelled. Hopefully, all will be well for the May event.

Re: NEAR-Fest is not Optional!!! Oct 11th & 12th 2019

John, up in Southern Maine (Portland) when I left, it was raining. I heard it pretty much drizzled all day here. I lost the drizzle coming over Mt. Hope in Sanford, and just had some spotty light drizzle going through Rochester, and Lee. Just had that 1/2 hour, or so heavier drizzle at the fairgroun...

As of now, bring a raincoat, and galoshes. Hope it changes, and that storm doesn't move up that far to Deerfield.

That Pro-668 was in the next aisle over directly across from where I was set up. If I didn't have my Pro-106, I would have bought it. The same guy also had a Pro-651 for $180, and either a Pro-652, or Pro-197, plus a few HT's (Alinco, Baofeng). The guy was complaining that the 668 was too hard to op...

Looks like the attendance was down. We had some dry hours between 9:30 and 1:30 when the sky opened up again. Like I said when I had to duck under the covering when it opened up again: "NEAR-Fest is not an option!" A damper to the day was the gentleman that collapsed and had to be transported out by...

I see some 220 repeaters in the area. Does anyone know if it will cover the fairgrounds decently? Like to give the 220 side of my radio a workout.
