Today, Saturday, April 20th, is the Support your Parks POTA Special Event. The Club will be at the Big Sioux Recreation Area in Brandon to participate. Setup starts at 9am as we check in to the Saturday morning Trader Swap Net on the 444.200 repeater.This is an excellent opportunity to get on the air, ask questions, see portable stations, and network with fellow operators. A grill will be available for use, but you will need to bring your own food. You will also need a park pass, but if you have a 2023 pass it is good until the middle of May.Hope to see you at Big Sioux Recreation Areas or work fellow ops on the air! ... See MoreSee Less
