Just a quick note that we have opened ticketing on the Boxboro website. Boxboro! The ARRL New England Convention is held annually at the Boxboro Regency, just of I-495, in Boxborough, Mass.
This year, the convention is on September 8, 9, and 10. Friday the 8th is special forum day with emergency management, SKYWARN, and other special-topic forums. Friday wraps up with the DXCC/Contesting dinner where this year our speaker is Jeff Briggs, K1ZM. He will be telling us all about the 7O6T DXpedition to Yemen.
The convention gets into full swing on Saturday and Sunday when the exhibit hall and flea is open, along with an excellent set of forums, VE exams, License-is-a-Day, and other goodies.
Our Saturday Grand Banquet features Paul Stoerzer, N8HM, of AMSAT. He has racked up all sorts of awards based on a small apartment-based station and will be letting on about his tricks or the trade.
Learn more about the convention, and purchase general admission, flea spaces and banquet tickets at http://www.boxboro.org.
General admission tickets (only) are also available at Ham Radio Outlet in Salem, NH, and at Electronics Plus! in Littleton, MA.
