It’s New Year’s Eve I take a trip up our local hill to activate Rib Mountain State Park in North Central Wisconsin (POTA K-1473). The weather was nice, the views awesome, but the noise on 40m; not so much.

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.’
