This weekend I met up with Dave, KZ9V, for a joint Parks on the Air activation at the Black River State Forest Castle Mound campground in Black River Falls, Wisconsin POTA K-4348. It was a fun weekend working with a variety of modes and making a lot of contacts. Plus the food wasn’t bad, either.

I will return QSL any 2-way contact. If you would like a QSL card; my callsign, KB9VBR, is “good in the book” as they say.
