    Jason, W3AAX, joined me to discuss some of the many new website features of the Parks in the Air program. There is more great stuff in the pipeline as well.

    I was used to the old version. I am not complaining about the new one as it is easier. It will take some exploring. Gonna activate a park tomorrow and see how easy it is to upload.

    From the 'hunter/chaser' aspect it looks like you can keep it simple or go really in depth with it. I'm sure as an activator it will take some getting used to. I need to do that this summer. Good luck with your activation hope to find you out there!

    I don't want to jinx the activation but the location has not been activated before. It would be my luck that someone is there when I show up already activating it. K-6559 Fort McKavett, Texas.

    I was used to the old website, and am not totally familiar with the new one yet. One thing I do miss is the ability to list all the parks I have on file so far. Maybe I just havent found it yet.

    Parks on the Air is one of best programs in ham radio. Many thanks to the people running it and the activators and chasers.

    POTA is great! It gives a lot of HOA bound folks the opportunity to get on the air and be chased as 'DX':)

    Thank goodness for POTA. Before POTA and the associated qualifications, definitions, classifications, rules, regimentation, disqualifications and such, it wasn't possible for radio amateurs to drive, bike or hike to a national park, set up their gear, get on the air and make some contacts - effectively putting a park on the air!

    Oh wait. Yes they could have. Never mind.
