The Central Massachusetts Amateur Radio Association (CMARA) will be conducting a “Learn CW Training Net” on the club repeater, W1BIM on 146.97 PL 114.8 on Monday nights at 7:30 PM starting January 15. Greg, WA1JXR will be the net control station and CW instructor. The purpose of the net is to teach hams new and old how to send and receive CW. The net will be a combination of FM voice as well as modulated CW (MCW) transmissions over the repeater.
CMARA members as a club project have built an MCW interface for their 2M FM radios which will allow them to send CW. If others are interested in obtaining a MCW Interface Kit they can contact Greg, WA1JXR at email@example.com and I will start an interested list. If we get a minimum of 10 kit orders I will do a bulk buy of parts and circuit board and assemble more kits. So check it off on your calendar and check into the “Learn CW Training Net” on Monday nights and learn and have fun with the original digital mode, CW.Read More

I am glad to announce effective June 11 the Cape and Islands Traffic Net will move to the N1YHS 147.375 repeater, PL 110.9. It is a new machine in Falmouth with excellent coverage both on and off cape and both islands.
I hope this move will enhance the net and allow more folks to get into the net. As always I am looking for anyone who would like to be a net control, just drop me an e-mail at n2jww.at.arrl.net.
Try and stay cool and I look forward to hearing more folks on the net.
