2015 ARRL Field Day Photos Posted


A few Photos I took at the Middlesex ARS 2015 ARRL Field Day.

We operated class 4A from the Portland Connecticut Senior Center where do to our advancing ages (well excluding yours truly) many of our members are also frequent visitors.
Not only was the venue spacious, but we operated in the comfort of A/C, with XYL support to keep our blood sugar levels elevated.
Tom K1KI our New England ARRL Div Director stopped by to say ‘Hi’.
Joan KA1RJO providing a HUGE assortment Cookies and fruit that lasted the entire event (boy where they good!).
We did ‘cheat’ with the food and ordered out for delivery from a local Pizzeria (was real good!).

More photos are to come as the other members forward their photography efforts to me, so stop back to see what has been added.
