Boston ARC Ham Radio Demo At Zola Center

Boston ARC logoBob Salow, WA1IDA writes:

On Saturday, 7 February, the Zola Center for Persons with Disabilities will hold an open house now that their facility has completed a major renovation.  Since [the Boston Amateur Radio Club] has supported the Center with a Technician course and will assist in setting up a permanent ham station, several of us have agreed to provide a demonstration station for the Open House.


The Open House is scheduled for 1200 to 1500; we will set up starting about 1100.  Planned is an HF station (wire antenna out the window) for listening only and full 2M/70cm station.

If you can spend an hour or more to promote ham radio and answer questions it will be very helpful to all visitors.  The Zola Center is located at 20 Hartford St in Newton Highlands – within two blocks of the Green Line T station.  Lunch will be provided.

So as to not overwhelm the staff and visitors, please contact Eric, K1NUN if you can attend.  Email:
