Looking forward to Boxboro again. :)

My wife and I will be there and on 900MHz non-amateur. We will be frequency hopping on 902-928MHz with Motorola DTR series 900MHz FHSS digital radios. I plan to also have 446.075 simplex CC1/TS1/TG99 on hand.

It was good to see you all there!

Picked up a 900 MHz rig; now I need to run some better cable than the 100' of RG-8 into my attic, most of which is coiled up. :)
