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. It’s fun to get out and check out our gear, and hang out both on the bands, and with each other. Did I mention that there’s usually food involved?
Parks On The Air (POTA) is an awards program where the emphasis is placed activating nearby parks and public areas via Amateur Radio. You can learn more about POTA at https://parksontheair.com/
Watch for more PCARS POTA ParkPeditions coming soon!
