Great picture of the repeater site – from Mt. Wachusett!

While at Boxboro a fellow HAM W1AWX introduced himself and showed me this great pic of WARA’s site taken from almost 40 miles away! Thanks Arthur! -Ron / KG1T

More Art!  – Apparently Ruth (see below) isn’t the only artist among us.  Here is a caricature of WARA member and past President John Flood N1JAF, drawn and donated to this web site by Donnie N1YAN .

“The Jack and Sal Radio Show” – An artistic 04/64 listener named Ruth (that is all we know about her) has sent us this masterpiece of caricature, and provided this name for the commuting-time discussions on our flagship repeater.
