Each year this event has grown and we anticipate another year of growth with 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 other Ohio State Parks.
NOTE: The OSPOTA committee is meeting soon to go over the rules and forms and get them ready for 2014. We hope to have the new files posted by the end of December.
Don’t forget we have an OSPOTA Yahoo Group located at http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/OSPOTA/info?yguid=339332370
The OSPOTA Yahoo site is used for messaging and sharing of information about OSPOTA for all the fans and participants in the OSPOTA contest.
Take care & 73 from the entire OSPOTA contest Committee,
