NPOTA - KD2ETP from Ft. Stanwix in Rome NY - March 26th

National Parks on the Air - from Fort Stanwix in Rome with KD2ETP and friends! 

KD2ETP; Steve will be hosting a NPOTA event on Saturday March 26th at Ft. Stanwix in Rome NY. He is looking for interested helpers and chasers to give the guys a call. Operating two stations from 10am through 4pm EST. Starting on 7.210 mhz and moving as band conditions warrant. Stay tuned here!  POSTPONED!

In 2016, the National Park Service (NPS) is celebrating its 100th anniversary, and radio amateurs will be able to help mark the occasion with the ARRL National Parks on the Air (NPOTA) event. “As ARRL just celebrated our own Centennial, and Amateur Radio is often enjoyed in the great outdoors, it seemed fitting to devise a program to help NPS celebrate their own 100th birthday,” said ARRL Media and Public Relations Manager Sean Kutzko, KX9X. As Sean explained, NPOTA will run throughout 2016, with activity promoted and encouraged from each of the more than 430 official NPS administrative units and affiliated areas across the US. This includes all 59 National Parks as well as National Battlefields, Historic Sites, Memorials, Preserves, Reserves, Rivers, Seashores, National Scenic Trails, and other units.
