July 2021 Meeting

Hi all,

Just wanted to give a quick update on the intent for next week. I had mentioned at Field Day that I was going to cancel the July meeting and regroup in person in August. However, there is much to talk about, so I’ve decided to hold an in-person meeting at 15 4th street, the Barre police station, at 6pm on Wednesday, July 7th. We have a lot to go over, including the Williamstown repeater site cleanup, and several events coming up in September that require volunteers.

We kindly request that anyone looking to attend meetings who is not vaccinated please wear a mask. We will not be asking about vaccination status, so please go with the honor system and use good judgement to protect the members of your community.

Lastly, a thank you to all who participated in Field Day this year. A fun time was had by all, and we greatly appreciate the hard work and help to make it all happen!

See you next week!

Field Day 2021

I’m happy to announce that CVARC will be hosting an in-person field day event this year! We’ll be at the Barre Rec field, 46 Websterville Road. The plan is to run W1BD as a 3A station on emergency power, plus a GOTA station kindly supported by N1LED (LEDdynamics Amateur Radio Club).

Those who are fully vaccinated do not need to wear a mask. If you are unvaccinated, we kindly ask that you wear a mask while attending the event if you cannot keep a 2 meter distance from others.

As always, field day officially starts at 2pm Saturday, fourth full weekend in June (6/26). Setup, for those interested, will begin Friday 6/25 at 2pm at the rec field.

We hope to see you there!
