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 make a lot of sense to try going to the flea market in the morning and then going over there after.

Their prime rib is HUGE, and it is excellent. But I just find I like the variety at the Blue Hair Cafe (The Lucky Strike) better. Plus the Strike has amazing pies.

Okay we have less than a week to program are radios so that we all stay in touch out there. Without any help from the others I'll wing it. I guess Paxton 146.970 114.8 or Worcester 146.480 107.2 when we get out of range of Waltham 449.075 88.5. Then MT Tom 146.940 127.3 Or maybe Feeding Hills 927.800 D244 or 146.670 127.3. On 6 Meters maybe Pelham 53.090 100.0 and then Granville 53.150 162.2? In the building 900Mhz of course. See you all there!!!
