Next up: OSPOTA

Hello fellow Amateur Radio Enthusiasts,
 
With Field Day done for another year, we can now look forward to the Ohio State Parks on the Air (OSPOTA).  This years contest is September 8th and we will be activating Harrison Lake again.  I have booked the Marzolf Shelter House for our event, and we will plan to combine the event with an end of summer cookout like previous years.  
 
We will probably setup a couple of rigs for running (80m and 40m) as any more then two is really quite useless for making contacts within the state of Ohio.  
 
Please mark your calendars for this fun club event, and we hope to see you there! I'll update times as we get closer to September.
