WELCOME TO THE

NEW

MERRYMEETING AMATEUR RADIO ASSOCIATION/KS1R

WEBSITE.

Special Thanks to KQ1L:  Dave Hawke (KQ1L) has hosted our website at no cost to the club for the past few years.  Recently he transferred our site to a new energy efficient server to reduce power consumption at his almost all solar/battery back-up/grid-tied home.  With the old server the house had a total load of 600 watts, after transferring to the new server the load dropped to 440 watts.  That’s a saving of ~100KW per month (mostly heat). To see a real-time representation of the KQ1L solar/battery/grid-tied system, go to: www.conysolar.com.  A big thank you from Dave KQ1L to the Club for allowing him to make this transition and a big thank you to Dave Hawke for all he has done for the MARA club.
