Cape Ann ARA Participating in Winter Field Day, Jan. 26

Dean Burgess, KB1PGH writes on the Cape Ann ARA mailing list:

Don`t forget to stop by the CAARA Clubhouse today and tonight (Saturday, Jan. 26) for the SPAR winter field day, starting at noon, and running 24 hours until noon tommorrow. We will have a CW and SSB station up and running. At the same time, you can also take a look at the current renovations going on to the second floor where some contest stations are being created — all due to the hard work of Jon, K1TP; Jake, K1LDL; and Ross, W1RAB. We also hope as many Board members as possible can stop by and particpate in this event as well.

Please make a QSO with KM1CC to celebrate the 110th anniversary of the first wireless Transatlantic message sent from the USA to Europe on January 18, 1903.

Presentation: Technological Changes, 1970 to Present, and Implications for Amateur Radio as an Emergency Communications Service

Gentlemen,

On behalf of the Minuteman Repeater Assn., I invite you to attend a talk on the subject of “Technological Changes, 1970 to Present, and Implications for Amateur Radio as an Emergency Communications Service” which I will present at the MMRA quarterly meeting, Wednesday, January 16, 2013 at 7:00 p.m at the Northborough Public Library, Main Street (Rte. 20) Northborough.  I also ask that you pass along this announcement to your respective organizations for the benefit on anyone who might be interested.  I hope you can attend and provide valuable feedback.  Anyone may attend, admission is free, membership in the MMRA (and, indeed, an Amateur Radio license) is not required.

Thanks for your help in passing the word.

73,
Tom Carrigan

CW Traffic Net Update

The Massachusetts Rhode Island CW Net (MARI) will convene Monday January 7 at 7:00 PM on or about 3565 Khz.  We will operate a slow speed net and training messages will be provided.  New and experienced ops are welcome.  Currently we will operate Monday through Friday and expand to seven evenings a week if there is enough interest. We will attempt to hold a Q&A session following the EM2MN on the 145.23 Boston repeater for questions and/or discussion.  Hope to see you there.

73, Marcia KW1U

Reminder: Monthly Eastern Massachusetts ARES Net for January 2013

Hello to all…

A reminder that the monthly ARES Net for January is rapidly approaching. The monthly ARES Net for January is Monday January 7th, 2013, at 8:30 PM on the MMRA Repeater system. This is after the MEMA Nets earlier in the evening. For frequencies that will be linked into the ARES Net on the MMRA Network, please see the following link from the MMRA web site detailing the repeaters that will be linked in through Hub 1:

http://www.mmra.org/repeaters/repeater_index_by_linkstate.html

In addition, if the Echo-IRLP node on the MMRA hub is available, we will likely link that to the New England Reflector system on IRLP 9123/Echolink Conference *NEW-ENG* Node: 9123.

Make this first Monday of the month, “Emergency Communications Night” and check into your local RACES Net and then check into the ARES Net on the MMRA Repeater System. We look forward to your participation and remember, we are always looking for Net Controls to run the ARES Net.

We will have several interesting announcements for the net that evening and we look forward to everyone’s participation. Updates will be posted via email and on the Eastern Massachusetts ARES Web Site at http://ares.ema.arrl.org

Thanks for your continued support of ARES!

Respectfully Submitted,

Eastern Massachusetts Hospital Net – Saturday January 5,2013

Good Evening Everyone and Happy New Year.

A reminder that the Eastern Mass Hospital Net will be conducted tomorrow morning commencing at the usual time of 10am.  The Plymouth repeater will be our starting point and which additional systems will be used for the net will be announced at that time.

A reminder that we have added 2 repeaters to the list available for our use. The Falmouth N1YHS Repeater 147.375 with a tone of 110.9 thanks to the generosity of Ralph Swenson N1YHS and the West Bridgewater K1VNU Repeater 146.755 dpl 244 thanks to the generosity of Gary Cumiskey W1GRC.

We are also happy to announce that The Falmouth Amateur Radio Association has their equipment in place at the Falmouth Hospital and have joined the Net. 

If any group or organization would like to run the Net from their facility as the Net Control please let us know. We would like to rotate the Net Control duty among several groups.

We would like to extend an invitation to the EOC of any city or town that is served by one of our participating hospitals to join the Net. During an event it is quite likely that these locations will be activated, and the need to communicate with health care facilities via amateur radio may be a real possibility. Any hospital not part of the net is welcome to join. If you are unable to join due to a lack of equipment or personal please contact us or Carl Aveni at caave@peoplepc.com for assistance in getting your location on the air.  

The following list repeaters are available for us to use during the Net. Only 4 or 5 systems are used each month and are rotated with the selection of those used made by the group acting as Net Control for that month.  If you unable to reach a specific repeater please monitor the next system in the rotation and wait for the net to arrive. If you lose contact with the rotation and are not sure where the net is currently located, South Shore Hospital will also be monitoring the the Plymouth Repeater during the Net. You can check with them on Plymouth and ask where the Net is currently located.

When asked to check into the Net by Net Control please use the standard net check in procedure which is: Here is.., un-key, wait 3 seconds to check for doubling, then give your call sign, First Name, facility call sign (if different) and facility / group represented.

Repeater, Freq, Tone                                                                                               

Attleboro 147.195 tone 127.3  
Bridgewater 147.180 tone 67.0
Danvers 145.47 tone 136.5     
Dartmouth 147.000 tone 67.0 
Fairhaven 145.490 tone 67.0   
Falmouth 147.375 tone 110.9

Simplex test: 147.420

The Net will return to the Plymouth repeater for final comments and net closing.

Respectfully,
John O’Neill – K1JRO

We look forward to hearing you all tomorrow morning,
