Members of the Cape Ann Amateur Radio Association are formulating plans to operate from Thatcher Island, off the coast of Cape Ann. The activity is tentatively scheduled for August 16, 2008.
According to CAARA’s Briggs Longbothum, AB2NJ, “the Fish and Wildlife Service will be issuing a Special Use Permit for our activity at the North Tower.” He writes, “the Thatcher Island Association is being very supportive of our plans.”
Longbothum will review the group’s plans at their next planning meeting, scheduled for this weekend.
“I’m hoping that our Thatcher Island activation becomes a recurring event with the CAARA name on it.”
