On Saturday, January 15th, we had our first official Parks on the Air (POTA) activation of the KARC Amateur Radio Club. The activation was held at the upper parking lot of Bays Mountain Park in Kingsport, TN. While the weather was a little chili, we had a great time making contacts and were able to make approx. 50-80 contacts over the course of an hour or two.
After Action Report
Overall, we had a very successful activation, especially considering this was our first "official" POTA/SOTA Activation for the KARC Radio Club for 2022. There are a couple minor improvement opportunities we can use to make our next activation even more successful.
