It’s the first camping of the season and we are on the road to Governor Dodge State Park, WI (POTA K-1451) for a Parks on the Air activation. See me try out an expedited configuration for the Wolf River Coil, talk to a brand new general and work four bands including a 40 meter late shift activation. This is the sh***y youtube video that the heckler on 20 meters is waiting for.

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.’
