NEQRP NEScaf kitting party Monday, Nov 21st

A kitting party for the Club's NEScaf kit has been scheduled for Monday evening, November 21st. Once again, we will be enjoying the generous hospitality of the Amateur Telescope Makers of Boston (ATMoB) at their clubhouse on the grounds of MIT's Haystack Observatory. Here's a copy of the announcement posted today by Dave, NT1U: The NEQrp club will be gathering once again Monday 21 November, on the grounds of the MIT Haystack Observatory to kit some more NEScaf kits. We invite any and all interested in joining us to come along.

Lobstercon VE test session is on for Saturday, July 9th, 2011

After some feedback regarding logistics of the proposed exam session at Lobstercon, and enough VEs being confirmed, we are a GO for the event.

I have registered a test session with the ARRL for Saturday, July 9th at Thomas Point Beach Campground in Brunswick, ME. I put "Lobstercon Event Field" as the specific location. If the weather is nice, we can conduct it right on the picnic tables before lunch. If the weather is less than nice, I will see about arranging the use of the recreation hall (or whatever it is called at TPB) for an indoor seating.

Testing will begin at 10:30am.

Vacation- No NEScaf shipments 29 June - 10 July, 2011

The NEQRP NEScaf shipping department (that's me) will be on vacation from Wednesday, June 29th through Sunday, July 10th. No NEScaf kits will be shipped during that period. Any orders that come in over that time will be serviced on Monday, July 11th. Thanks for your interest in the Club's NEScaf kits, and I apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause. I -will- be travelling with several NEScaf kits. These will be available for purchase at Lobstercon in Brunswick, ME on July 9-10th, at special show pricing. 72/73, Bruce, N1RX

Lobstercon 2011 VE Test session?

Hello, folks. I am making preparations for attending Lobstercon again this year in Brunswick, ME at Thomas Point Beach Campground. Linda (KA1ORB) and I will be arriving on Wednesday afternoon, July 6th before the scheduled festivities.

I am trying to determine if there is interest in having a VE Test Session (That's Volunteer Examiner, not Canadian license testing) at the event. I am the ARRL VE team liaison for my local testing group, and would bring all the materials required.

NEScaf filter kits temporarily sold out.

Due to overwhelming demand, we have again sold out of our current stock of NEScaf filters. Parts are on order for another round. Some items are backordered at our supplier, but we hope to be able to accept orders again within 2-3 weeks time (mid-June timeframe).

Check back later for updates, and thanks for the continued interest in this kit.

NEScaf Filter kits are available to order!

The NEQRP kitting crew met in Westford, MA last night and prepared another round of the club's Switched Capacitor Audio Filter kit, the NEScaf. Kits are once again available for ordering from the NEQRP Club Store.

Thanks to all the kitting volunteers, and all the users of this kit for the continued interest, and patience while we prepared another round.
