The Barnstable Amateur Radio Club (BARC) will conduct a special event this Saturday and Sunday, September 18 and 19, 2021 at the Harwich Cranberry Festival in Harwich Center on Cape Cod. BARC will operate W1MA, the club’s new callsign, honoring BARC member Ed Lajoie who became a silent key on February 3, 2021.
Operation is expected on 10, 15 and 20 meters with a tri-band beam on a tower. The operators will engage the public at the entrance to the event. Talk-in for any hams who would like to drop by will be on the W1MA 146.955 repeater (88.5 Hz tone).
