The Pentucket Radio Association is planning to participate in the annual National Wildlife Refuge Week operating event October 13-21, 2007 from the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge on Plum Island.
Pentucket RA members discussed the operation at the club’s May 17, 2007 meeting. According to PRA’s Larry Caruso, K1LGC, Park River NWR Director Graham Taylor was “very happy to see interest from a ham group.”
According to the Parker River NWR website, “Plum Island is a natural barrier island stretching along the Massachusetts Atlantic coast between the mouth of the Merrimack River to the north and the mouth of the Ipswich River to the south.”
Caruso will “work out the details” with Taylor for the on-air event in which amateur stations across the U.S. will operate from national wildlife refuges to promote interest in them and also, Amateur Radio.
“It’s a win-win situation,” K1LGC writes.
