Ham Radio at Area 1 Venture Quest
- BSA Venture Crew 510 (that's DX in Roman Numerals) will be hosting
the ham radio portion of Venture Quest at Moses. We are chartered through
Pioneer Valley Council. We'll be using the crew's club call,
NE1C (New England's #1 Crew) and be
on 2m, IRLP, and HF Scouting Frequencies -- I'm guessing 20m for the
From what I gather, we'll be in operation on Saturday May 10th from 1:PM
to 5:PM. We'll offer eyeball QSL cards / operator cards for those that visit
and actually speak on-the-air, and possibly customized QSL cards and/or
certificates for on-the-air contacts.
We have a permanent radio shack up on the reservation, with a TA33
beam up 55'. The Crew owns an IC746 which we'll use for HF. We can
reach IRLP node 7270 in South Hadley from the reservation.
