3/28 23:11 UTC POTA K-3854 Activation

Well as you all know, N4AED and KO4MSN are heavy in to POTA. They decided to go out Monday evening to activate Flower Hill Nature Preserve K-3854. It started out slow as the contacts were not as steady as they wanted. They were finally spotted on the pota.app website and things went much better. Prior to 00:00 UTC they made 45 contacts in the USA and Canada. After 00:01 UTC they made 106 contacts for what POTA calls LATE SHIFT. They went QRT at 02:30 UTC with a pile up still pending. But the laptop battery they were using all but died, and they were forced to pack up and leave.

Here is the POTA website showing their numbers.

If you would like to join a POTA activation or learn more. Please reach out to N4AED – Richard, KE4NKY – Domingo, or Randall – KO4MSN. I am sure they would love to show you what POTA is all about. Even if you do not Activate a PARK, you can always HUNT parks from Home / Mobile. This is a great activity to get people outdoors and in parks that may or may not get alot of people in them.
