Parks On The Air, 101

Paul Sharp, WS8R, presented Parks On The Air, 101, at the January General Membership Meeting. His informative overview described what Parks On The Air or POTA was, where to create your account and get spots for POTA activations, and why you might want to give POTA a try, especially for new hams or new General Class operators looking to get on the HF bands. Following the presentation, John Westerkamp, W8LRJ, demonstrated the process by looking through the spots to find a POTA activation, tuning the radio to the POTA frequency and aiming the beam, making the contact live, and then logging the contact.
