Mid February can be beautiful and cold. I recently took a trip to Woodboro Lakes State Wildlife Area, WI for a Parks on the Air activation (POTA K-4345). Did I see a Hodag? Possibly; they do make a fearsome noise.

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.’
