Affiliated with The Hudson Division of American Radio Relay League.
The Peconic Amateur Radio Club visited the Cradle of Aviation November 9, 2022. Originally seven members were planning to attend, but at the last minute four members had to cancel. The event was attended by N2RBU Roberta Keis, KC2ZQL
Gene Schroer and KD2WBH Peter Rutlin.
The travel weather was perfect and the club members really enjoyed the day
viewing all the exhibits from early aviation up until the Space Age.
There is much to see and do at the museum. The club plans to set a future date to
spend more time reading / viewing and interacting with the exhibits. There was
also a 40 minute Imax 3D movie that was viewed, one of four that play throughout
The admission was covered by a free family library pass for the day, available at
most public libraries for the asking, the movie had a separate charge, but well
worth watching. There is a nice cafeteria to sit and take a break with good and
reasonably priced fresh cooked food.
