Join the Minuteman Repeater Association at their January meeting at the Clay Center
Wednesday, January 18 7:30pm
Bob Phinney, K5TEC, of the Clay Center Observatory (in Brookline) is hosting this meeting and will be providing an overview of the research going on at their facility. Past programs included telescopic tracking of SpaceShipOne launch October, 2004, and laser imaging of the International Space Station.
The Clay Center for Science and Technology is owned and operated by Dexter School and Southfield School. It houses high-tech science labs, an astronomical observatory, and amateur radio repeaters. It is powered in large measure by alternative power sources on the roof. It also served as the net control center for the 2005 Boston Marathon.
The Clay Center is located at 20 Newton Street, Brookline, MA 02445. For additional information about the Center and directions, visit http://www.claycenter.org and http://www.dexter.org/map.html.
This is also your chance to view MMRA’s newest repeater site, as the Brookline 146.820 machine is located here. This site provides wonderful coverage and talk-in will be provided on this system (PL 146.2).
The MMRA maintains 15 repeaters in Massachusetts open to all hams. These can be linked for special events, nets, and emergencies providing coverage throughout eastern Massachusetts. Please visit http://www.mmra.org for information on this outstanding club and consider joining and contributing to their work.
