Field Day 2021


Time is upon us once again to all come together and have some radio fun...

This Thursday some of us will be headed over to our usual Field Day spot.

To all our Ham radio friends out here that knew our friend Bill Kretschmer, this is a special Field Day because Bill was the Vice President of our club and he had passed away back in November.

We will be camping at Field Day up in Scituate/Humarock area at the fourth cliff military rec area.

This year Bill will be with us in spirit on the 24th to the 27th.

 RIP Bill, you are truly missed by many.


New England QSO Party 2021


Here's the latest what's happening folks.

The New England QSO Party on May 1st and 2nd is a great time to check out antenna systems and offers a moderately paced opportunity to work new states and countries. You'll find a wide variety of participants, from newcomers to experienced contesters, all interested in making contacts with New England stations.

2021 club dues

Due to us not being able to go to any hamfests this last year and probably not alot this year. We have decided to extend our 2020 paid membership is carried over for the whole year of 2021.

All NEW members that want to join this year will have to PAY 20.00 to get more website access to become a fully paid membership to the club

NEARfest spring 2021

Sad news but NEARfest spring 2021 is canceled due to COVID-19.


On November 6th in the early AM we lost a great man, our Vice President of the club and dear friend Bill Kretschmer N2KNL.

Rest in peace Bill

May you make many contacts on your new journey. 73

Boxboro 2020 canceled

Northeast HamXposition 2020 Cancelled

Bob DeMattia, K1IW, Northeast HamXposition 2020 Chairman writes:

Large indoor gatherings such as our convention are currently prohibited by Massachusetts state law. This is highly unlikely to change by November.  Unfortunately, we will not be able to hold a physical convention this year.

Field Day 2020

Field Day is on for the NorthEast Amateur Radio Club this year.

Also Since Covid-19 the site for Field Day at Fourth Cliff is closed to the general public for this event in 2020

Call Russ K1RTA for more info if needed.

Upcoming radio event

Due to the COVID -19 there is no hanging out with our fellow hams up at NearFest this spring on May 2nd and 3rd but you can make some contacts at home with this radio event if you are into contesting.

To New England radio clubs:

I'd appreciate your help in publicizing the upcoming New England QSO Party on May 2nd and 3rd.    Please mention it at your next club meeting and in your newsletter.  Hope you've had good success in using virtual meetings!
