Once again this year, the Crossroads IRLP Reflector is sponsoring its annual New Year Around The World QSO Party. Locally, it will be carried on the 145.490 Fairhaven repeater from about 6:00 AM on New Year’s Eve until about 3:00 AM on New Year’s Day. At its peak, there are normally around 100 repeaters worldwide that are linked together. So come join the fun on the ’49 repeater!

Note: As in prior years, local SKYWARN activity will pre-empt the net. If this occurs, the net may be temporarily heard on the 147.000 Dartmouth repeater as a backup.
