On Feb 25th, CNYARC hosted an outdoor activation activity at Moscow Hill in Charles E. Baker State Forest (K-5166). It was a snowy and bitter cold day with temperatures in the teens but that didn’t stop the 5 participants from getting on the air!
A total of 3 stations were set up and the team logged 142 contacts. Jeff KD2MTL succeeded in activating his first park and Shaun N2EWC became the lead activator for the park.
November 12 was a good day for a dual POTA (Parks on the Air). We had two club members at Chittenango Falls State Park (K-2035) Shaun (N2EWC) and Ed (KD2WNW). Two others were at Tug Hill Wildlife Management Area (K-9103) Marc (KR2HWK) and Josiah (KR2ECP). During their dual park activations they made some great contacts and were able to do a Park to Park on 40m during the day.
There are some photos below from one park where they remembered to take photos, Shaun and Ed while the other park activators forgot, Marc and Josiah. In that list of pictures is also a map of their contacts. It was a busy day for both groups and in total they completed 101 contacts. 30 were accomplished at Chittenango Falls and 71 were completed at Tug Hill. Elevation at Tug Hill was around 1942 ft and Chittenango Falls was about 861 ft.
Both groups had a great time. If you are interested in more information about Parks on the Air (POTA) Check out this website. POTA
