Watts Up This Week (Extra Helping)

MAY we have a POTA party?!?!?

Have you ever thought, “I kinda want to get into Parks On The Air” or “Portable set-ups sound fun” or “How does Christina put up with going to the parks with Thomas and Chris all the time?” Come join our POTA party and find out!

We are getting the summer fun started with a Sunday POTA party at Empire Mine State Historic Park in Grass Valley on May 26, 2024. We’ll kick things off @ 10AM and continue as long as we have willing operators (or we get kicked out).

We will have two HF portable stations available for everyone to use (Yaesu FT-710 & Yaesu DX-10). You do not need prior POTA experience, or even a call sign. We promise to teach you everything you need to know for your first successful POTA activation.

What we will have:
  • 2 radios with full set up
  • Shade
  • Way more energy than we should have
  • Computers for logging
What you will need to bring:
  • A chair to sit in
  • Some snacks
  • Something to drink
  • Your best CQ voice
If you are interested in joining us or have any questions please contact Thomas KN6MJB or Chris N6CTC. All are welcome, but we would like to get a head count.
If this is your first POTA please go to https://parksontheair.com/ and create an account (It’s free!)
