Many of the Boston Amateur Radio Club Officers are saying that the club had a record Field Day weekend with more contacts then in the past years, with many members working So hard to make contacts throughout the Saturday and Sunday hours.
Very Important People (VIP’s) came to visit our Field day site from the ARRL
I myself am very proud of my 12 contacts that I made during this time, including one with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center, Houston, Texas 77058. My Elmer (Teacher for ham radio) came to the site on Saturday and at some point gave me a 2023 Field day Pin for me to wear. (Thank you Joe C.)

During the Friday- Sunday my roommate and I had a few encounters with local Wildlife (So Cool). We saw Two Deer, White Tail Rabbits, many Garter Snakes, and some turtles (think they are painted turtles, But not sure) Overall, its a very nice weekend, and I had a lot of fun!
