K8BF Parks On The Air Field Trip April 30West Branch State Park

The weather is warming up, and I have faith that the snow will be just a fond memory by the end of April. So, let’s do a K8BF POTA Field trip. We’ve talked about this during the Portable ops SIG. It’ll be a great chance for some fun & fellowship.
Whether you’re coming out to share an antenna design, get on the air, or just to find out what portable operating, and Parks On The Air is all about, A good time is promised. We’ll have at least one station (hopefully more) on the air from west Branch State Park. That’s K-1999 in the POTA numbering system.
We’ll be meeting up at West branch State Park (9 AM on April 30th). The picnic pavilion at the West Boat ramp has been reserved for the day. It’s just a few minutes East of Ravenna. The entrance is just east of the intersection of Cable Line & Rock Spring Rd, in Edinburgh township. The GPS coordinates are 41.1321604045631, -81.14243175302533
We’ll have stations running at least through the morning hours. If the interest is there, we’ll stay later. I’m available to answer questions. (E-mail: john@wg8x.net, PH/txt: 330-936-5021).
If you’re like me, the chances of traveling to Bouvet, or some other rare location to be rare DX is pretty slim. But, with Parks On The Air, you can have a pile-up each time you activate! Come on out and have some fun!
