|ProspHillW||Note||FD1941||Which picnic site was used for 1941 FD is unrecorded, but confirmed Arlene N1OMA is in the picture.|
|ProspHillW||Note||FD1998||It was the clubs 60th anniversary, and we had just recovered our old callsign, W1MHL, with the then-new vanity call program. We ran 2 HF stations and a VHF station from Prospect Hill in Waltham (near the repeaters). Organized by Kip Shustak, N1AUP, this operation had 15 participants and made 920 contacts. Prospect Hill was very nice, but the cost of requirements placed on us by the City of Waltham, for multiple porta-potties and extra police coverage, could not be afforded on an annual basis.|
