Bike4Bikes Charity Bike Ride   Updated 9/5/2016
 
We We still need people for Bike4Bikes - Sept 25 (7am to about 1pm). 

This is a charity ride supporting Northeast Community Cycles, which rehabs old bicycles and then provides them to children and adults in need (adults use he bicycles as transportation to their jobs).

The ride is essentially the same as the Bloomin Metric in the early summer.  It has three routes (40km, 75km, and 100km) with five SAG wagons (support vehicles) and three rest stops.  We put people on the SAG wagons and at the rest stops.  The ride organizers tell us that they don't think they could handle the size of the ride without our help.

I
t's a good cause and there's lots of good food.  Please help.  If you can only do part of the time, we can use you.

SARA Repeater Update

The DMR repeater at Sterling Farms is working at reduced signal strength for reasons unknown. Its transmission
range is very limited. State Police technicians have been consulted, but are busy with other work and haven't had
time to diagnose the problem, although the they note that when they access the repeater remotely over their network,
the they are seeing a high heat alarm. In case the problem lies within the repeater, we will be checking its warranty
status since it is relatively new.

The 2m analog repeater at Sterling Farms still needs work to become operational.
The 2m repeater at the hospital continues to work well. We are still trying to work out ways
to get it moved to the new, taller building. 
Andy Siegel, N2CN, Secretary

What is Ham Radio ?  

Amateur Radio (ham radio) is a popular hobby and service that brings people, electronics and communication together.

People use ham radio to talk across town, around the world, or even into space, all without the Internet or cell phones.

It's fun, social, educational, and can be a lifeline during times of need.   MORE INFO

Emily N1DID presented how to set up and operation of the Buddipole HF/VHF portable antenna system. Buddipole provides horizontal or vertical antenna configurations to operate on 40 meters all the way up to 2 meters in a package that weighs less than 9 pounds. This will be a hands-on presentation - we will have two Buddipoles available and will set up them in the training room.
