The 15 meter band is red hot at Parks on the Air activation of the Ackley Wildlife Area, WI (POTA K-4622). I also check out a long lost rail spur and talk about its unique history.

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.’

See all the contacts from the Ackley Wildlife Area (POTA K-4266). Patrons have access to the full, unedited video of the activation:
