PHOTOS: Radio Amateurs of Northern Vermont Field Day

Radio enthusiasts gathered in Williston this weekend for the Radio Amateurs of Northern Vermont Field Day. The field day is held each year at the end of June and demonstrates nationwide emergency communications preparedness by the amateur ham radio community. The goal is to set up efficient, self-contained stations and contact as many other emergency-powered stations as possible.

    almost 3 decades ago when williston started it’s development review process the public works section was pushing for a wider roadway typical for residential streets. The town adopted 30 ft widths vs 24ft. That’s 6/24 (30%) additional impervious area and runoff that needs to treated before flowing into ALLEN BROOK. The town and selectboard have indicated a lack of interest to reach out and help communties like mine that have had expired stormwater permits for more then a decade. Its always been a wait and see, well I see where this headed now.
