Big Bay State Park (POTA K-1439) and Big Bay Sand Spit and Bog (POTA K-4244) are two little activated entities located on Madeline Island on Lake Superior’s Chequamegon Bay. It’s always a pleasure to put these parks on the air when we take our annual trip to ‘the island’. For this trip I operate exclusively from the shores of Gitchee Gumee.

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.’
