The Mount Tom meeting for June 15 will be about World War II spy radios. February of 2011 I did a video of George Rancourt’s ( K1ANX) extensive World War II collection of spy radios at HCRA. This is a one-of-a-kind collection and well worth seeing. 

To complement this meeting our September meeting will have a representative from the Antique Radio Museum with a small collection of some old radios to look at and maybe listen to. If you’ve never been to the antique radio Museum it is definitely an interesting place to go.

The ARISS project that has been endorsed and supported by our Club and has come to a very important crossroad. 

Congratulations to Pathfinder advancing with 13 of the 25 schools and organizations to Phase 2 in the ARISS-US [Amateur Radio on the International Space Station] TEAM competition! Schools and organizations are competing for the opportunity to communicate, using amateur radio, with astronauts living and working on the International Space Station.    

In Phase 2 of this competition, all 13 finalists, including Pathfinder Regional Vocational Technical High School, will submit an amateur radio equipment plan to demonstrate the capability to execute ham radio contact with the International Space Station. An ARISS technical team will make final selections. Finalists will be scheduled to communicate with the International Space Station during the 2nd half of 2018.
