Re: NEAR-Fest XXVIII has been cancelled.

Actually, Carroll has a roadside stand that he operates in Hillsborough on Henniker St., of course named Angelino's, along with his 2 trailers that he takes to these fairs, and other events in New Hampshire. He will make it, even though he's lost out on events. The XYL are planning a day trip to go...

Re: Chicopee Flea is next Saturday March 7th

I'm starting to look into if I could go to the flea, and then afterwards finally get up to the Feeding HIlls/Agawam 900 repeater to change the input frequency to 902.0625 to try getting around all the noise it has currently on 902.800. I've been wanting to do this for a while, but it just seems to m...

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

Great seeing those who were there as always! The weather was fine, a couple drops of rain on Friday and some drizzle Saturday morning. Nothing like it was down south of the mass pike.

It’s looking like the rain won’t arrive until late afternoon on Friday, and Saturday will be dry. I’ll be there for the whole time l, except maybe a trip out for dinner on friday night somewhere. Hope to see many of you there!

Re: NEAR-Fest October 2018

The GEMOTO email list still exists on google groups, that's about it. Once K1RJZ moved to NH and became heavily involved in DMR, the website stopped being updated.

Tomorrow is the day! I think John changed the Breakfast plans to a different restaurant called the Cowbell on South Ave, but I know that is a much smaller place than Nellie Rose, with no parking, so not sure why the decision was made to go there. I shouldn't talk though, since I won't be able to go ...

For those not familiar with it, it's 145.390, CC9. Right now, MA Statewide 3125 is the only one that's set up as a static talkgroup, on TS2. Others you may want to put in on TS2 are local 9, RI 3144, NH 3133. TS1 is usually more for the national stuff, Bridge 3100, TAC 310, 311, 312 (those 3 TACs cr...

Another great NEARFest is in the books! Weather was probably the best we've ever seen. Not a drop of rain for the entire duration of the event. There was barely even a cloud in the sky. The only complaints I've heard have been about sunburn and the annoying bees everywhere. The crowd should have bee...

I think the flea market vendors have been scared away by bad weather on Sunday in the past, so the flea was very small on Sunday. I still enjoyed mys...

8/3 dx

It's been a while since we've posted about DX on here. I haven't been monitoring the public safety bands, but the FM broadcast band is open as far down the coast as NC tonight. 94.5 WCMS and 97.1 WYND, among others have been very strong tonight. Go get 'em!

Attendance was down, but honestly, not as much as I feared it might be with how bad the forecast was. I was there for the duration of the event, and had a great time as always. Sure, I got a little wet, but nothing we haven't seen before. NEARFest was not optional!
