Summer Slide

Cape Ann Home

I hope everyone is starting off the summer wonderfully.  I have some great news……Interest rates continue to slide and people’s buying power has been greatly enhanced.  Also people can save money too!

If you currently own a home, and are paying 4.25% or more in interest, or have an adjustable rate mortgage, now is the time to get a rate in the high 3’s and fixed!

If you want to find out how much you can afford on…

The Fishing Shack

Cape Ann Home


In 1916 there stood a fishing shack on Rocky Neck.  Despite the amazing view, there was nothing special about this shack. Many like it shared the same beautiful scenery, overlooking the outer harbor and what lies beyond. As far as fishing shacks go it was nondescript. But great things come from humble beginnings.

Field Day at Cape Ann Amateur Radio Association, 6 Stanwood Street in Riverdale/Gloucester on this weekend, June 22-23, 2019

Field Day at Cape Ann Amateur Radio Association, 6 Stanwood Street in Riverdale/Gloucester on this weekend, June 22-23, 2019 – Thanks – Hank McCarl, President, CAARA

Amateur Radio “Field Day” – June 22 and 23 – Will Focus on Skill, Service, Science

WHO/WHAT  Members of the Cape Ann Amateur Association (CAARA) will be participating in the national Amateur Radio Field Day exercise, June 22 – 23 at 6 Stanwood Street, , Gloucester, MA. Since 1933, ham radio operators across North America have established temporary ham radio stations in public locations during Field Day to showcase the science and skill of Amateur Radio. This event is open to the public and all are encouraged to attend.

WHEN  Saturday and Sunday, June 22 and 23. On Saturday, June 22, from 2 PM until 2 PM Sunday, June 23.

WHERE 6 Stanwood Street, Gloucester ,MA

WHY  Field Day is a showcase for how Amateur Radio works reliably under any conditions from almost any location to create an independent communications network. “Ham radio functions completely independent of the Internet or cell phone infrastructure, can interface with tablets or smartphones, and can be set up almost anywhere in minutes. That’s the beauty of Amateur Radio during a communications outage,” says David Isgur, N1RSN, communications manager for ARRL The national association for Amateur Radio®, (, which represents Amateur (or “ham”) Radio operators across the country.

“In today’s electronic do-it-yourself (DIY) environment, ham radio remains one of the best ways for people to learn about electronics, physics, meteorology, and numerous other scientific disciplines, and is a huge asset to any community during disasters or emergencies if the standard communication infrastructure goes down,” Isgur adds.
Anyone may become a licensed Amateur Radio operator. There are more than 725,000 licensed hams in the United States, as young as 9 and as old as 100. And with clubs such as CAARA it’s easy for anybody to get involved right here in Gloucester.
