If you are a newly licensed ham (less than a year), or a ham that has been off the air for two years, your help would be greatly appreciated as an operator for our Get On The Air (GOTA) station, this Field Day (June 28 from 2 PM, until June 29 at 2 PM). See our Field Day 2014 Web Page for details. If you might be interested, please contact Bob, WB4SON
Those of you who are interested in Broadband Hamnet (aka High Speed Multimedia Mesh Networking – HSMM-MESH), will find a new RI oriented website at:
The website has the PowerPoint presentations that were given at the CCRI meeting at the end of April.
The Red Cross has decided to move out of its Middletown facility, and hopes to eventually find a new location somewhere on the island (more space, more parking, handicapped accessible, etc.).
Willy Maclean spent a good part of today (with Henricus) removing all club equipment and uninstalling the outside antennas. We all owe Willy a debt of gratitude for taking care of that. Many thanks to the Red Cross for sharing their space with us for many years — we hope to continue our relationship at their new location.
The next meeting of the Newport County Radio Club will be held at KVH Industries beginning at 7 PM on Monday, May 12th.
In addition to our usual business agenda, we expect to be discussing Field Day (only 50 days away!) and our upcoming Beavertail Lighthouse Activation.
A presentation will be given by KVH describing their product offering and facilities.
