Eighth Annual Ohio State Parks On The Air – Amateur Radio Contest
Make sure to mark your calendar for the 2015 Ohio State Parks On The Air (OSPOTA) contest – September 12, 2015. The contest is always held on the first Saturday following the Labor Day holiday.
Each year this event has grown and we anticipate another year of growth with even more participating Amateur Radio Operators.
Let me remind you that the OSPOTA contest was conceived with three main goals in mind:
1. To promote public awareness of amateur radio and Ohio’s beautiful state parks system
2. To contribute to the recognition that Ohio has a very diverse and wonderful ecology
3. To promote camaraderie within the ranks of Ohio’s Amateur Radio Operators
Your participation has allowed these goals to be achieved. We agree it is a lot of fun to get out in a natural setting with your radio and see how well you can do at working operators in the beautiful Ohio State Parks.
The 2015 files are being updated and with your help, we’re looking for a fun event again this year. Make your plans now.
Don’t forget we have an OSPOTA Yahoo Group located at: groups.yahoo.com/neo/
The OSPOTA Yahoo Group page is used for messaging and sharing of information about OSPOTA for all the fans and participants in the OSPOTA contest.
