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.

Jeff Bonn (radio call sign N1YD) operates a station that, under the rules, allows less active hams and even unlicensed people to join the fun. Kathi Walbridge (K1WAL), Carl Dow (AB1DD) and Jeff Laughlin (N1YWB) are there to help. (Observer photo by Al Frey)

    I am writing in response to Mr. Hoxworth’s article on transportation costs for the poor in Vermont. I would like to suggest further research on this topic before we simply just give another handout or tax credit. The poor, may, have a higher disproportionate burden on their transportation costs than the wealthier residents of Vermont; however, they also have a lower disproportionate burden on taxes and housing. Pick your evil.
    We can simply just give every poor Vermonter an energy efficient car, gas card, free tuition, renter’s rebate, etc.…but the only way out of poverty is through the combination of education, hard work, and discipline. Education and degrees are not handed out or purchased; a person has to EARN them. This seems to be the only way out of poverty—sorry, there are no shortcuts.
    If we continue this trend of enabling, our entire state will be a welfare state.
