Another activation along the Ice Age National Scenic Trail (POTA K-4238). This time at the newly built Little Rice Lake segment in southeastern Marathon county, Wisconsin. Will my Chameleon 17ft whip antenna survive this Parks on the Air activation?

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.’
