Parks on the Air Activation!

N3HAL and I activated Heckscher State Park park number K-2070 on 10/24.

The weather was overcast and a cool breeze was coming from the Great South Bay. 40 meters was open from about 16:00 to 17:00 UTC. When 40 dropped out we switched up to 20 meters. Since the CQWW contest was going on, finding a clear frequency was nearly impossible.

All things considered, we had a fairly successful activation with 25 contacts. We made contacts as far west as IOWA north to Toronto . We made two park to park contacts also. Pipestem Resort State Park and Point Rock State Park.

The old TS-50/AT-50 and Wolf River Coil TIA just keeps on chugging along. Visit my Parks on the Air Intro to learn more about the Parks on the Air program?
