    Hi Everyone,

    Nashua ARC will be hosting its first Youth Outreach event on Saturday, October 15 from 8am-2pm at Mine Falls Park in Nashua, NH. Mine Falls Park is located on Whipple St.

    Mine Falls Park hosts many youth soccer games every Saturday throughout the Fall. We are hoping to take full advantage of that fact in order to provide kids a bit of insight into what comprises amateur radio.

    Some of the activities that we will likely host are:

    • Get-On-The-Air (GOTA) Station
    • Fox hunts
    • Use some HT’s and get on the Nashua repeaters

    Abby, KC1FFX
    Jamey, KC1ENX
    Brian, AB1ZO

    We could use your help with this event. We are planning to put up our antenna and test the stations on Friday at 9 am at the park. We will be operating on Saturday from about 8 am until roughly 2 pm in the afternoon. We could us help with both the setup on Friday and the operation on Saturday. If you’d like to help, please let Jamey or myself know. We are also planning a follow-on event for young people who are interested in Amateur Radio. More to come on this soon.

    Unfortunately, the weather this Saturday does not look good – the current forecast is for steady rain on Saturday. Jamey Finchum, KC1ENX and I spoke this morning and have decided to postpone our youth event at Mine Falls Park to our rain date which is now Saturday, Oct. 15th. Will will plan to setup on Friday, October 7th at 9 am at the park and will hold our youth activity from 8 am – 2 pm on Saturday, Oct. 15th. We hope that you’ll come out and support our youth outreach event then.

    Looks like Saturday Oct 15th will be a better choice for our Youth Outreach Event. As before, we will setup on Friday Oct 14th at 9am at the park.
