A proclamation issued by Massachusetts Governor Maura Healy proclaims June 24, 2023 as “Amateur Radio Day” in the Commonwealth.
The document recognizes the “significant role in developing worldwide radio communications” by the “approximately 13,000 amateur radio operators that dedicate their time, equipment, and knowledge to assist their communities.”
The proclamation was secured thanks to the efforts of MA State Government Liaison Steve Boyson, N1VLG.
Paper copies of the proclamation will be distributed to Western MA Section Manager Ray Lajoie, AA1SE, and Assistant Section Manager Tom Walsh, K1TW. Ray and Tom will display the proclamation while visiting various Field Day visits throughout the sections.
The proclamation will be listed along with other proclamations across the country on the ARRL Headquarters website at <http://www.arrl.org/proclamations>.
