What’s your favorite part of camping? The fire, the food, the ham radio? Chris and I share that and more as we explore the Kettle Moraine State Forest in Southeast Wisconsin. The Kettle Moraine State Forest POTA K-4352 and Long Lake Recreation Area K-4260 is a Parks on the Air Two-fer.

As a bonus, patrons can view the full, unedited phone contacts for this Parks on the Air activation. Visit my page on Patreon for details: https://www.patreon.com/posts/pota-unedited-k-84906461

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.’
