Sadly, monthly breakfasts are on hold pending resolution of the global pandemic.
We meet every month on the 1st Saturday at 8:30 at the Riverside Cafe in the Towle Building on Merrimac Street in Newburyport. Bring something to show off or just join in on the conversation. All are welcome.
Note: below are just some images from our monthly breakfasts.

6 of us ignored snow. Here is Dave, KD1NA’s latest qrp rig from Kits & Parts
Here is Al, KN1O with a calibrated, laboratory variable capacitor!
We had 12 hams join us including a couple of 1st timers!
Dave, KD1NA brought a titanium particle component to a particle accelerator which focuses ions from a vacuum tube for use in silicon wafer construction. Notice the burned up area around the slot which faced the tube.
