WC8VOA will again participate in the Ohio State Parks on the Air. This year we will operate from Little Miami State Park (LMI).
The plan is to operate from the edge of Veterans Memorial Park in Morrow, OH. The event is on Saturday, September 7 and runs from 10:00am TO 6:00PM. The address is 212 Hamlin St., Morrow, OH, which is about 0.5 hr. from VOA. The location is right on the trail. There is a parking lot between the baseball fields where we can get close for setup purposes. There are plenty of trees to support the antennas.
I am taking the OCF, which can give us coverage on 80m and other bands. If I get a bunch of interest, I will take the go-box. It seems to be quiet, free from local RF noise interference. This is a gentle valley here.
This is a fairly relaxed event. And unlike som other events, everyone is welcome to come out and operate.
I have reached out to both the state parks people and the village, and with no push back. I was warned that there may be some other activities on Saturday, so I have a Plan B, C, and D. See my comments below as to how to reach out to me when coming to the event.
Please bring chair, snacks, and refreshments. Talk-in is on 146.520 MHz simplex. I plan to be on site at 9:00am. If interested or have any questions, contact Karl, N8MIQ. firstname.lastname@example.org Cell 513-966-0143
