Falmouth ARA Participation in “Operation Shake Up”

Matthew Trott, KB1MLP, Falmouth Amateur Radio Association Public Relations Officer writes:

Members of the Falmouth Amateur Radio Association/Cape Cod ARES participated in ARES drill “Operation Shake Up” on February 9 with surrounding Amateur Radio clubs and home stations.

The purpose of the drill was to test the capability in establishing communications with stations both within and outside of our district. The drill also tested communications capabilities with our hospital station, primary stations, EOC, shelters, and other ARES members’ home stations. Various field sites participated across Cape Cod, including: Falmouth, Sandwich, Harwich, Joint Base Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, and Nantucket. In addition, home stations participated from as far away as Acushnet, Massachusetts. Communications utilized 2-meter and 70 cm FM, 75 and 40 meter SSB, and 2 meters PAC digital. ARES field teams were instructed to bring their own equipment. “Served agency” equipment was not used at any time. The Incident Command System (ICS) was assigned prior to the start of operations and used during the exercise.

Falmouth did a great job establishing operations at the Falmouth Hospital, the Falmouth EOC at Falmouth Fire Rescue Headquarters, and the Falmouth Field Site at Falmouth High School. Stations made use of various mobile transceivers, batteries, generators, amplifiers, and home brew antennas. Net control at the Falmouth Hospital did a great job in directing the operation. A lot was learned.

Drills and exercises like “Operation Shake Up” are very important in encouraging participation among  Falmouth Amateur Radio Association members and are an important part of FARA’s continuing commitment to community service.

EMA ARRL Web of the Past

EMA ARRL web site, circa 1998Shown here is a snapshot of the old Eastern MA ARRL web site circa December, 1998. At the time, our site was hosted by QSL.NET. The site consisted of static HTML pages. Elaine Chase, N1GTB, a former ACC for Eastern MA served for many years as the site’s webmaster.

In December, 2008, switched to a Drupal content management system. The site used Drupal until February, 2018. It underwent a complete redesign and a migration to WordPress. Much of the original content from twenty years ago can still be viewed.

ARRL Board Gives the Go-Ahead to Lifelong Learning Initiative

ARRL is undertaking a new initiative to provide online educational opportunities to a broad range of radio amateurs. The Lifelong Learning Initiative will seek to provide a series of learning tracks that will serve the needs of the various interest groups within the Amateur Radio community.

While designed for everyone with an interest in learning more about Amateur Radio, the Lifelong Learning Initiative will initially focus on creating online learning opportunities for new and newer hams, a segment of the Amateur Radio community desperately searching for educational and instructional and resources.

YCCC Members QRV for ARRL DX CW Contest Weekend

Several Yankee Clipper Contest Club members plan to operate from DX locations in the upcoming ARRL DX CW Contest February 16-17.

YCCC president Dennis Egan, W1UE, of Marlborough, writes he will be on Roatan Island  (off the coast of Honduras).  “If you need HR on any bands, let me know.  I’ll also be doing some 60-meter operation, SSB only on the same frequency slots as the USA. For the contest, I’ll either be W1UE/HR9 or HQ9X.  Haven’t got the authorization for the special call yet.” Dennis adds he’ll also be on Roatan for the  CQWW 160M SSB contest the following weekend.

Brian Machesney, K1LI, Vermont, is traveling to J75Y in Dominica. He hopes to be on from the DARCI club station for both CW and phone, low power.

Dave Sumner, K1ZZ, Coventry, Connecticut, will be QRV from 4U1ITU in Geneva (a separate DXCC entity). “It’s not exactly a DXpedition, but because I will be in Geneva for an ITU meeting February 18-28. I am going a couple of days early to put 4U1ITU on for CW.” Dave adds he will have to QRT early Sunday “but there will probably be a couple of other operators as well.”

Kurt Pauer, W6PH, of Amherst, New Hampshire, will be VP9/W6PH (Bermuda) for the contest. Kurt says it will be his 20th consecutive year there.

Paul Young, K1XM, Hudson, MA, will operate remote as VY1AAA giving out the rare Yukon Territory multiplier. “It is not a DXpedition because I’m not going anywhere,” Paul adds.

Bill Barber, NE1B, Hudson, New Hampshire, writes, “C6ANM (Bahamas) may be on for ARRL CW and CQ 160 SSB, depending on antenna build challenges.” He adds the station will be on “definitely for ARRL DX SSB with NE1B, N1GN, K1EP and K1VK.”



February 5, 2019: Gerry Hull, W1VE, Hancock, NH, will be part of a multi-multi operation from P40E (Aruba) along with K2LE, K9RS, N3RD, and AA5B.  “Please work us on six bands.  We will be watching 10 carefully, with a dedicated SDR watching the band.”


February 14, 2019: Dennis, W1UE, confirms he will operating as HQ9X for the ARRL DX CW contest.

Volunteers Still Needed for 2019 Boston Marathon

Registration has been open for the 2019 Boston Marathon for Amateur Radio Operators across the start, course, finish and with transportation medical buses. Volunteer registration is open through Wednesday February 6th and though arrangements can be made with the Boston Marathon Amateur Radio Committee to volunteer after this deadline, we are hoping to get all needed volunteers prior to the February 6th deadline. For volunteer information registration and information, please see the following link:

If you are interested in volunteering for the 2019 Boston Marathon but are not sure at this stage about whether you can participate, we encourage you to register now. If it turns out you cannot volunteer, send notification that you can no longer volunteer as early as possible. It will be very difficult to bring in volunteers once registration closes. If you register and can no longer volunteer at the event, please let us know as early as possible so contingency planning can be completed.

For Amateur Radio/ham radio operators, you don’t need to specify any group name or passcode. Just make sure you request at least one ham radio assignment in your preferences. Once you get your application confirmation number, you’re all set.

If you’re a returning volunteer (whether an Amateur Radio or non-Amateur Radio assignment), you’ll be asked to provide your BAA Volunteer Loyalty Number. You should’ve received that in a separate e-mail from the BAA today. There’s also a tool to look it up on the BAA volunteer site. If you still have trouble finding it, e-mail us and we can help you out.

Don’t delay! Volunteer registration closes on Wednesday February 6th. Help us get the word out by forwarding this e-mail to your club and other hams who might like to volunteer and for non-hams to any volunteer groups who might be interested in supporting the event. Most volunteers first learn about the event through word of mouth. If you know new amateurs involved in volunteering for events who might like to volunteer, make sure to let them know about it. Even just a quick mention at your club meeting or regular meeting of your organization can be a big help.

If you have any questions about volunteer registration, or the 2019 Marathon generally, please get in touch anytime. Volunteering at the Marathon is a big job, and we appreciate the time and effort everyone puts into it. We’re happy to do what we can to make your work more comfortable or effective.

Local Communities Looking for RACES Officers

A few months ago, the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency conducted a survey for all local community emergency management directors across the Commonwealth. The survey was specifically about the use of amateur radio and RACES locally within their community, whether each emergency manager has an appointed RACES Officer, and if not, if they would like to find one.


The Radio Amateurs Civil Emergency Service (RACES) is a radio service using amateur stations for emergency management communications during periods of local, regional or national emergencies. RACES is defined in law in Part 97.407 of the FCC rules. In the event the U.S. President ever needed to silence the regular Amateur Radio Service by invoking the War Powers Act of 1941, only RACES appointed stations could continue to operate and assist their appointed served agencies.

As a result of the survey conducted by MEMA, the list of communities below are interested in locating an amateur radio operator to serve as their RACES Officer.

If you are interested in any of these appointments, please inquire with that community’s emergency management director. It is also highly recommended to discuss the matter with MEMA Regional RACES Officer which services that local community’s county. We might be able to recommend you based on whatever previous amateur radio EmComm or other public service you’ve done that we’re aware of. We may also be able to give you additional insight into the role in that community.

The MEMA Regional RACES Officers are:
Region 1: Terry Stader KA8SCP
Region 2: Mike Leger N1YLQ
Region 3: Frank Morrisino K1LMY
Region 4: Gil Hayes WK1H

Communities looking for RACES Officers:

  • MEMA Region 1 (Suffolk, Middlesex and Essex Counties)
    • Nahant
    • Belmont
    • Manchester-by-the-Sea
    • North Reading
    • Revere

Eastern Massachusetts ARES Net for Monday February 4 at 8:30pm

Hello to all…

The monthly ARES Net for February is Monday the 4th, at 8:30 PM on the MMRA Repeater system. 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:

We look forward to your participation and remember, we are always looking for Net Controls to run the ARES Net.

As part of our relationship with MARS and our own situational awareness gathering we will be asking for any known infrastructure issues that you are aware of. The information must either be personally observed, or obtained “over the air” via amateur radio. Items considered to be infrastructure include but are not limited to: electrical power, water, medical facilities, sanitation, communications, and transportation. Examples of failure would be: small or large area power failure, water main breaks, hospitals’ ER closed, sewage issues, TV/radio station off the air (including public safety), interstate highway or major road closed. No known issues are just as important as reporting failures.

Additionally we are interested in relay of any weather information from airport ATIS/ASOS stations that you can directly receive via radio. These stations broadcast continuously in the 120.000 – 138.000 MHz frequency range using amplitude modulation. Information from the ATIS should include airport, temperature, altimeter (barometer), wind, precipitation, and visibility.

A list of stations with their frequencies and a map can be found at:
A brief introduction to ATIS can be found at:

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

Thanks for your continued support of ARES!

Eastern Massachusetts ARES Section Emergency Coordinator

Register Now to Volunteer at BAA 5K, April 13, 2019

Brett Smith, AB1RL, writes:

Volunteer registration is open for the BAA 5K! The race is the Saturday before Marathon Monday, April 13. Registration is scheduled to close on February 6, so please sign up in the next week to make sure we can get you on the team.

The 5K and the Marathon use the same volunteer registration system. If you’re volunteering at the Marathon, please register and request a Marathon assignment (if you haven’t already). After you’re done, please e-mail BAA volunteer coordinator Mary Miller and CC: me to request to be added to the 5K roster as well. If you can include your BAA volunteer loyalty number or registration confirmation number, that helps.

If you just want to volunteer at the 5K, go through the volunteer registration and choose 5K Amateur Radio as your assignment preference when asked. You’ll know you’re done when you get a confirmation number.

The BAA always appreciates support from amateur radio volunteers. We wouldn’t have that great relationship if you didn’t come and put in the work to make these races possible. I hope you’ll join us to help kick off another great year of public service.

If you have questions about the event, please don’t hesitate to ask.

Thank you, and 73,

Brett Smith, AB1RL
