It was too nice of a day to work, so I took an hour’s drive to do a Parks on the Air activation of Hartman Creek State Park, WI POTA K-1455 and the Ice Age National Scenic Trail K-4238.

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.’
