I was recently invited to operate with W5MIG (Jerry) & N9MM (Norm), who are two very avid outdoor ham radio operators. They decided to get together this month & operate Parks on the Air at Blanco State Park (POTA ID: KFF-2990) in Central Texas on December 10, 2017. Estimated time of arrival (update): Planned start time: 1700UTC. There will be 3 of us, so we’ll alternate operating. CW & SSB planned, 20 & 40m for sure – possibly others. Keep a lookout on the WWFF DX Cluster (and others) for our spots!
Jerry & Norm travel all over the place and operate from some very neat locations! Hopefully I can learn a thing or two about these Veteran operators & their operating styles. They are both CW operators and I’m looking forward to observing their CW skills!
Blanco State Park isn’t a whole lot to look at, but it’s next to the beautiful Blanco River which can get quite popular in the summer time. A trip to the Texas hill country is always welcomed, especially with good company & ham radio!
If you hear us or work us, spotting is always appreciated! Also, keep a lookout in the POTA Facebook group for more updates!
