Once again, BARC will be participating in SKYWARN Recognition Day at Great Blue Hill Observatory In Milton on Saturday, December 1. Our station, WX1BHO, will be on the air from approximately 0900 to 1500 local time. This is a great low-key way to get your feet wet in the HF bands.
Access to the summit is gained by a 20 minute hike from the base of Great Blue Hill located on Route 138 next to the DCR Trailside Museum or (if you arrive early in the day) by car. Further information is available by contacting Mark Duff, KB1EKN, at email@example.com. If you’re interested in hiking up the hill, contact Joe Chapman, NV1W, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
