It’s Road Trip Sunday! We head out to catch a hamfest in Appleton, WI, a soul food lunch, and of course a Parks on the Air activation at Hartman Creek State Park, (POTA K-1455) in Waupaca on the way home.

I do return QSL, if you made a contact with me and would like a QSL, please send me one. Return postage not necessary, but always appreciated. As they say, KB9VBR is ‘good in the book.’
