North Shore ARES To Provide Limited Support to Peabody International Festival

Hello to all….

The following was posted to the North Shore ARES and North Shore Radio Assocation email lists by ARES Emergency Coordinator, Jim Palmer-KB1KQW:

Attention all North Shore Amateurs! We have been contacted by the City of Peabody Emergency Management department to provide limited support for the Annual International Festival to be held in Peabody Square on Sunday, September 9th from 11:30am until 6:00pm. This will be a relatively easy and informal event to support. All that is required is any amateur interested in attending the Festival is asked to bring their HT’s along with them and tune to the 146.88 (-) 118.8 PL NS1RA Salem Repeater. We will be looking for the following information…

– Check-in with us to tell us you are at the festival

– Check-out with us when you leave

– Watch out for Health and Safety…if you see something that requires attention…let us know!

Net Control will be operating at an undisclosed location. Due to the nature of the event, we are unable to discuss it over the air…so please do not ask, nor discuss it on air. However, if you would like to arrange to see our operation, please contact Jim or Eric IN ADVANCE (before the festival) so we can try to arrange that for you. Please note that we cannot guarantee these arrangements and may not be able to accommodate every request, depending on what is going on at the time.

If you have any questions about this event, please let either me or Eric know and we will do our best to answer them for you. I will update this e-mail next week if we get further information, and you can also visit for updates.

Thanks again to all for their continued help and support of North Shore ARES.
