2018 Boxboro! Program Schedule Announced

The 2018 Boxboro! New England ARRL Division Convention has released its program schedule of forums, meetings and presentations on September 7-9, 2018. 

“We’ll feature a wide variety of technical and non-technical talks and presentations throughout the weekend,” said Phil Temples, K9HI, Boxboro Program Chair. “Everything from: SKYWARN Training, AMSAT and MARS forums, Easy RF Fingerprinting, along with several sessions on Youth STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) and much, much more.”

The entire schedule is now available for viewing on the Boxboro web site at: http://boxboro.org/forums-and-classes.

Boxboro DXCC/Contest Dinner Guest Speaker: Don Greenbaum, N1DG

Join your fellow hams for a delicious DXCC/Contest dinner on the first night of the [Boxboro New England Division] convention. Accompanying us will be Don Greenbaum, N1DG, telling the story of his upcoming trip to Baker Island, as part of the KH1/KH7Z DXpedition.

Don was a banker on Wall Street, and in the early 1980s, became Treasurer of Commodore International. The job at Commodore took him all over the world and he began operating from exotic DX locations as well. During this time, Don wrote one of the very first ham radio logging programs in BASIC for the Commodore 64 and later ported it to DOS for IBM compatibles.

Adding to his ham radio repertoire, Don has been on several major DXpeditions including VP8ORK, K4M and A52A. He has also operated as A61AD, A51DG, A73A, and /KH9, /VP9, /VS6, /BV2, /4X and /9V, and has been inducted into the CQ DX Hall of Fame by CQ Magazine.

Attendees will have their choice of a chicken, fish, or vegetarian meal.

There will be a door prize (currently TBD).

Tickets are likely to sell quickly, so make sure to get your tickets online when they are available.

Doors will open at 6:30 PM on Friday at the Federal room.

NWS: “Damage at NEAR-Fest the Result of a Tornado”

picture of tornado on radar screenLarry Caruso writes on the Pentucket RA mailing list:

“As reported on WMUR Channel 9 this morning: the National Weather Service confirmed the wind event that damaged our tent at NEAR-fest was an EF1 tornado. It traveled at 50 mph for 36 miles.

“That helps explain the loud sound we heard as it approach and why other nearby sites weren’t damaged.”

Boxboro logoDon‚Äôt just attend Boxboro 2018‚ÄĒBE A PART OF IT!

We’re looking for talks of both a technical and non-technical nature.

Groups who wish to set up information tables should get your requests in early. While the tables are offered without charge, we ask for some volunteer time in return to assist us with ticket sales and other logistics during the convention.

“Woodstock of Amateur Radio”: NEAR-Fest XXIII, May 4-5, 2018

NEAR-Fest logoMichael Crestohl, W1RC/VE2VW writes:

NEAR-Fest XXIII will be held on May 4-5, 2018. It is held twice annually, spring and fall, rain or shine, at the Deerfield Fairgrounds in Deerfield New Hampshire beginning on Friday at 0900 and ending Saturday at 1500 hours.

Admission is $10. Persons under 18 and over 80 are admitted free of charge upon presentation of government-issued ID. Inside parking is available for $10 and includes a ‚Äúreasonable amount of flea market selling space‚ÄĚ for PRIVATE INDIVIDUALS selling their own personal property. Commercial vendors must register and pay applicable fees. If you are wondering if you are a ‚Äúcommercial vendor‚ÄĚ you probably are. One complimentary inside commercial space is available for clubs, estates and other ‚Äúnon-profit organizations‚ÄĚ on an ‚Äúas available‚ÄĚ basis.

Overnight camping, trailer and RV hookups are available. Three food vendors provide meals and snacks at reasonable prices. The Deerfield Community Church ladies serve up a breakfast that has to be consumed to be believed. Angelino‚Äôs offers hamburgers, steak, sausage submarines and other great ‚Äúfair food‚ÄĚ specialities and Patty‚Äôs Polish Kitchen menu features wonderful ‚ÄúMitteleuropa‚ÄĚ cuisine. No one goes hungry at NEAR-Fest. We are extremely proud of the high quality of food that these vendors offer our guests while they are at the ‚ÄėFester.

NEAR-Fest typically attracts attendees from the six New England states, NY, NJ, PA, MD and other states as well as from Quebec, Ontario, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia in Canada. Some attendees travel great distances; one gentleman from Los Angeles has attended fifteen events and in 2010 one radio amateur traveled from Greece to join us for the fun.

The program of activities and events at NEAR-Fest is extensive; a huge outdoor electronic flea market, three buildings full of commercial vendors, forums, technical seminars and symposia, demonstrations, exhibits, displays, licensing examinations, special events radio stations, a ‚Äújam session‚ÄĚ, good food, fellowship, fun and general mishigoss. NEAR-Fest is the largest event of its kind in the Northeast and has once been described as the ‚ÄúWoodstock of Amateur Radio‚ÄĚ.

New England Technology Trek at NEAR-fest, May 4-5, 2018

A Hudson, New Hampshire amateur is proposing a youth event at NEAR-fest on May 4-5, 2018.¬† Dubbed “New England Technology Trek,” the event’s focus is to expose youth to a number of exhibits and activities, including:

  • 3-D printers and CAD
  • Robotics.¬† Build a circuit. Build a robot
  • Drones, homemade and various applications
  • Space communications,¬† HAB and portable satellite station
  • Kit building
  • Software Defined Radios
  • RaspberryPi and Arduino applications
  • Fox hunting and outdoor adventures (SOTA)

Bill Barber, NE1B says a number of schools have been invited to participate. “You will see yellow buses on Friday, followed by kids and their parents¬†on Saturday.¬† Stop by the Arts & Crafts Building to see what is happening. That’s the big building near the Fairgrounds entrance, the one with the VE tests downstairs.”

NE1B is looking for volunteers to help staff the eighteen- to twenty different exhibits. “Contact me if you can help for an hour or two.”¬† [yccc@groups.io]

Boxboro 2017 Tickets Now On Sale

Boxboro/New England Division Convention logoBob Di Mattia, K1IW writes:

Hello All,

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.

ARRL New England Division Convention, Call for Speakers

Boxboro logoDon‚Äôt just attend Boxboro 2017‚ÄĒBE A PART OF IT! The Boxboro Committee seeks fresh and exciting presentations for this year‚Äôs ARRL New England Division Convention, September 8-10, 2017. We’re looking for talks of both a technical and non-technical nature. As a Boxboro speaker, you will have the opportunity to share your subject and knowledge with Amateur Radio operators from around New England, surrounding states, and Canada.

In addition to forums throughout the day Saturday, we will feature Saturday evening entertainment, workshops on Friday, and a half-day Sunday program.

If you represent a regional club or organization (e.g. YCCC, NEQRP, WRONE, MARS, etc.) we can help facilitate open forums or closed meetings by providing you a meeting space.

Groups who wish to set up information tables should get your requests in early. While the tables are offered without charge, we ask for some volunteer time in return to assist us with ticket sales and other logistics during the convention.

To register as a presenter, please go to http://boxboro.org/forums-and-classes or email or call us if you have additional questions.

We look forward to meeting all of you at the convention.
