S.M.A.R.T - Symposium of Maritime Amateur Radio Techs

The Symposium held in Amherst on April 30th turned out to be a great success. Bernie, Sheldon, and I (Dennis) ventured up there for a day trip. We left Yarmouth about 3 AM and made it up there just in time.

I've heard from a couple of the organizers, that they are already planning to put the event on again next year. It's looking like it might be a two day event.

VE1JBL (Jim) has posted a picture and some more information on The Maritime Amateur Website (scroll down the page a bit).
