    I have recently gotten my daughter to take an interest in Parks on the Air. She liked it well enough she got her technician license, then a month later upgraded to her general. She wanted her general so she would be able to use her own callsign on activations. Now, we split the time at parks. Either way, a great way for daddy/daughter time.

    Great activation! POTA seems to be really contributing to activity. It is great to see youth involvement but also that has to be really special getting to share the hobby with your daughter and good quality daughter/father time for the activation!

    Nice--you are fortunate as ALL parks in my state are closed because of COVID-19. Technically federal (BLM and USFS) land is shut down as well even if it is not park land. My place is surrounded by thousands of acres of BLM land and closed or not my dog and I still jog there every day.

    Wait, my irony meter just broke. How does a lifelong leo justify breaking the rules?
    This sort of mentality is what will be the covid downfall of America. Too many people already think the rules don't apply, just look at what happened last weekend at the coast. And here you are Jerry bragging up how you go to the federal land to do what no one else is allowed to.

    This is exactly what is killing this country right now, people thinking they are exempt from the rules. Not that what you are doing is likely to be a problem itself but.... why are you going on here promoting anarchy?

    Nice video and a great contact rate considering how bad the bands have been.

    Having my daughter on the air helped... but honestly, the band was doing well for us. We worked a bunch of stations, most of them really strong. Thanks for watching!

    You're the one being unrealistic.

    If he and his dog are avoiding people, as most do while jogging in the wilds, what terrible risk is he taking?

    Really... what additional risk or risks is/are posed to he or his dog, or the public at large, by jogging in the wilds of Oregon? Please tell us what that is and how it affects himself or the public at large?

    Please do. I really want to hear this! I'm sure others want to hear your logic as well.
