SEMARA Meetings, Postponements, & Cancellations

The business meeting for April 2, 2020 is canceled.

The VE Session scheduled for April 4, 2020 is canceled.

From Marcel, W1MLD, President:

“Hello to All,

Hope you are all well.I am cancelling the business meeting for April 2nd 2020 due to the mandate by Gov. Baker to limit the gatherings of more than ten people. The May meeting will be addressed when the time comes.

The work party for Saturday will be postponed for a latter date as this serious virus subsides.

The Sunday morning coffee meetings are still on as long as we keep it to ten (10) members or less and do not have any cold or sickness symptoms.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation.

Hope you all stay well and be careful in your daily activities. Wash your hands many times a day.”

Welcome!

Field Day is ham radio’s open house. Every June, more than 40,000 hams throughout North America set up temporary transmitting stations in public places to demonstrate ham radio’s science, skill and service to our communities and our nation. It combines public service, emergency preparedness, community outreach, and technical skills all in a single event. Field Day has been an annual event since 1933, and remains the most popular event in ham radio.
