The 2006 ARRL New England Division Convention will be held on August 25, 26th and 27th. Mark your calendars now and plan to attend!
A great program is being planned. We are excited to announce that the newly elected ARRL President, Joel Harrison, W5ZN will be in attendance. Here is your opportunity to meet Joel first hand at the ARRL Forums. He doesn’t get off that easy though, as our guest of honor at the Saturday evening banquet, we get the opportunity to hear from him again. Order your tickets early as the banquet seating is limited.
We are also happy to report that Bob Heil, K9EID will be making a return visit with one of his ever popular talks on all things audio. Look for Bob’s presentation early on Saturday, and we’ve left plenty of time of questions and answers after his presentation.
The Special Event station W1A will be in operation. This is a good opportunity to operate the top shelf amateur radio equipment the industry has to offer and havem fun while doing it!
The Boxboro Holiday Inn, located at the junction of Routes 111 and 495 in Massachusetts, will again open its doors to the Amateur Radio community with its spacious parking and comfortable accommodations. Hotel information is available through the boxboro.org website. Room rates are reduced for this year, be sure to ask for the “Boxboro Ham Radio Convention Rate” when making your reservations.
The “Call for Presenters” remains open. Please contact WO1N if you have an Amateur Radio related presentation or represent an organization that would like to reach out to a large population of active Hams. Volunteers are also welcome to help with event planning and execution.
We hope to see you there!
