Parks on the Air Activations

One of the best ways to enjoy portable amateur radio is to activate park units for the Parks on the Air (POTA) program. The idea is simple: activators set up in parks and make contacts with hunters. Both parties get points, bragging rights, and have fun.

I started doing POTA activations in December of 2020, and have been having great fun with it since then. Check through the pages below to view a few of the past activations I’ve gone on. These are just some of the more interesting ones; check my profile on the POTA website to see the full list.

NOTE: the pages below have photos present, but the narrative portions are still under construction. Check back later to see the full details
