We will not be setting up this Friday night, the 27th. We will be arriving around 08:00-08:30 L.T. Saturday morning the 28th, at the Barre Town Rec. Area to begin setup.
From Barre, Rt. 14 South; Take LEFT ON Quarry Hill Rd. (turn is next to State Farm Insurance), up past “Thunder Road” racetrack to LEFT ON WEBSTERVILLE RD.. The entrance to the Barre Town Rec. Area will be ON YOUR RIGHT, just past the cemetery, same entrance as the driveway to the school. Stay straight past the school until you see the pavilions across from the athletic field. Look for the CVARC Field signs.
From I-89; EXIT 6 down Rt. 63 (long down hill). CROSS Rt. 14 (at the light), up MIDDLE Rd. until you see Rock of Ages visitor’s center on your left at GRANITVILLE Rd.. LEFT on Graniteville Rd. to WEBSTERVILLE Rd.. RIGHT on Websterville Rd., then RIGHT into the entrance of the Elementary/Middleshool drive (same directions as above, once on Websterville Rd..
From Rt. 302 in East Barre, either direction, turn onto Rt. 110 (near Mobil Station). FOLLOW TOWARD RIGHT onto MILL ST. to RIGHT ONTO WEBSTERVILLE RD. Keep going around the old quarry until you see the Elementary/Middle School on your left. LEFT into entrance of the school (far end), then straights as directions above.
I hope I got these directions right. We will have a radio set up for “Call-in/Talk-in” on our repeater, 146.625, 100 Tone, -600 input. Yell if you can’t find us. Signs should be set up before 8:30 a.m., the 27th.
I think we have most all radio, antenna, power supply and generator needs covered. However, it never hurts to have too much than too little. So, bring whatever you think might be helpful.
“Picnic” supplies, such as paper goods, plastic utensils, etc. will be provided and the all essential COFFEE POT. Food, however may be “ad hoc”. So, you may want to plan to bring something to share and make sure you have enough for yourself.
Steve Board, KA1LHZ, will be giving a demo on proper technique for attaching various RF connections to various coax once we have everything set up and on the air (after the 14:00 L.T. start time).
Hope to see everyone there.
