    That's the important part was the doing. There will always be a QRZ windbag out there and don't let them ever discourage you.

    Great job getting out there and bringing that park on the air! Nice job putting together the video and getting that posted to YouTube and starting a channel. Going to share with my son and daughter to try to encourage them to get on the air as well!

    Can you tell us a bit about your camera setup? For me, I've found that having a mini tripod to hold the camera or phone is super helpful and costs like $20 for something like a Manfrotto PIXI mini.

    In the future I am going to be using a bit more sophisticated setup, but for now I am just using my Samsung A20 phone camera. I hope to make a contact with your kids sometime!

    Y'all are too funny :) Thanks for getting out have fun with POTA, even without "papa"... HIHI... Congrats on the new call sign as well. It was good to hear you get a QSO with Judy AA5UZ in Louisiana, as she's quite famous among the POTA circuit, as well as her husband Jon AA5UY. Nice on getting K7SEN in AZ as well... he always gets me on 20m it seems, even all the way to parks in Maryland... Congrats on the dual solo activation! :) I bet you're well on your way to many awards... 73 W3AAX

    Great video! I have said it before I think Parks On The Air is a great way to attract youth in the hobby, it can be competitive, it involves the outdoors and it can be a relatively inexpensive way (set-up costing less than an iPhone 11). Good ears pulling out the light signals! Future contest ops?
