POTA Field Trips

Parks On The Air Field Trips

Periodically, our Portable Operations Special Interest Group organizes a field trip to a local park. We set up our portable gear, and do a POTA activation. Why? Because it’s fun to get out and check out our gear, and hang out for the day.

Parks On The Air (POTA) is an awards  program where the emphasis is on taking your gear out to parks, and public areas, and “activating” them via Amateur Radio.  You can learn more about POTA at https://parksontheair.com/

PCARS heads out to the park several times each year. Our most recent Field Trip was on April 16, 2023, during the Spring POTA Support Your Parks (SYP) event.

Watch for more PCARS POTA Field Trips coming soon!
