Sci-Tech Amateur Radio Society (STARS) meets weekly on Tuesdays from approximately 6:00pm to 8:30pm.
We typically start the evening by making contacts and ragchewing in the radio room. At 6:30pm, STARS uses its UHF repeater [[masked] MHz (- offset) PL 146.2Hz] for a traffic NET. We then sit down for business (and often pizza!) by 7pm. Once the formal meeting wraps up, we usually tackle radio projects such as the satellite station set-up. Come by anytime, but you will probably feel you missed out if you are later than about 7:30pm.
STARS weekly meetings are located at and hosted by the high-tech STEM education center called New England Sci-Tech (NE SciTech), located at 16 Tech Circle, Natick, MA.
The STARS radio room is set up with HF, VHF, and UHF rigs as well as electronics test equipment such as oscilloscopes, antenna analyzer, and spectrum analyzer.
