We are trying this again and hoping to inform the public about ham radio and get more people interested enough to sign up for classes.
New hams can benefit ALL our clubs and ham radio in New England! Will you be a part of making this happen?
Please sign up at the above link!
Thank you for your support!
73 and enjoy the holiday weekend.

HamXposition 2023 is coming August 25-26-27.
In addition to our popular outdoor flea market, we will have a range of inside exhibitors, as well as a first notch set of speakers offering forum and presentations about many aspects of ham radio.
Come meet some old or new friends and maybe learn something new about our hobby!
We are very pleased to announce that the Nashua Area Radio Society (NARS), will be returning to present Amateur Radio Exposition at HamXposition. This exposition will include many hands-on activities, videos, and displays about amateur radio and wireless communications. NEScitech will also be providing hands-on experiences geared toward children and young adults.
On Friday night, Don Greenbaum, N1DG, will be headlining the DXCC and Contesting dinner. On Saturday morning, ARRL president Rick Roderick, K5UR, will deliver his keynote address. On Saturday night, at the Grand Banquet inventor and scientist Chip [Cohen], W1YW, will talk about his amusing background, ‘ham-genuity’ and some the pitfalls and pleasures along that tortuous path of invention.
Tech-in-a-day study course and VE exams are available.
Online ticketing is available now. If you wish to stay overnight, discounted hotel rates are available through July 25th.
