CTRI Meeting Saturday Aug. 11 @ W1XX QTH

The CTRI Contest Group will hold its August meeting this coming Saturday August 11 at 9:00 AM at the QTH of W1XX, 48 Shannock Road, South Kingstown, RI.  Agenda:  Field Day results analysis; upcoming contests.

Your host requests an early arrival at 8:30 AM for the somewhat annual raising of the 160 meter vertical that took a storm hit last March.  Your help would be very much appreciated.  It takes several hands to man the 3 boat trailer winches and guy ropes to assure success.

Suggest parking on Shannock Road as the driveway will be blocked at the top by the antenna.  Sorry… rope tow transportation to the top of hill not presently operational.  Hardhats (extras if you got ’em) recommended.

Hot dogs (Saugys of course) and hamburgers on the grill post meeting.

Please join us.  Members and  guests welcome. 401-783-1588 if you get lost. 73!  — John, W1XX

  1. John, I regret that for the first time I will be unable to assist with the antenna raising. My son is flying into Burlington on short notice to visit Matt and his wife Dina, and I’m leaving tomorrow night to join them. I won’t return until later Saturday or early Sunday.

    Good luck and go slow and steady!

    Pat, NG1G

  2. I hope to make it but must help in setting up a mega- yard sale. So if I can break away, it will be later.
