Just a quick note. I plan to activate Sunken Meadow State Park K-2147 today, February 26th, some time around 18:00 UTC. It’s a popular spot for Ham Radio operators and a watering hole for the LIQRP group. Should you hear me on the air, please spot me.

Sunken Meadow State Park is a stunning natural park located in Suffolk County, New York. The park is spread over 1,287 acres and features a range of scenic landscapes, including a beach, a saltwater marsh, and dense forests. The beach stretches for almost a mile along the Long Island Sound.

The park has hiking and biking trails through the park’s forests and wetlands. For hikers, the Greenbelt Trail connects to other parks on Long Island.

Sunken Meadow State Park’s history dates back to the 17th century, when it was the home of the Matinecock Native American tribe. The tribe used the area for hunting, fishing, and farming. Evidence of their presence can still be seen today.

During the 19th century, the Europeans farmed the land. New York State acquired the land in the 1920s and began developing the area into a park. The park first opened in 1931 and over the years it size was expanded. During the depression, the Conservation Corps built the park to what it has become today.

 Sunken Meadow State Park is a must visit place which offers something for everyone.
