They say Madison, Wisconsin is 77 square miles surrounded by reality. we set out to see if that’s true as we tour the four lakes area of Southern Wisconsin and put three parks: K-1459 Lake Kegonsa State Park, K-4250 Capital Springs State Rec Area, and K-1452 Governor Nelson State Park on the air.

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.’
