Group Description

Make sure to mark your calendar for the 2018 Ohio State Parks On The Air (OSPOTA) contest – September 8, 2018. 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 2018 files are being updated. PLEASE check out the new files as they are posted – some things may have changed.

Don’t forget - we have an OSPOTA Yahoo Group located at: groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/OSPOTA/info
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. The Yahoo Group is where the action is.
Also, since we do allow spotting to encourage more contacts during OSPOTA, Facebook is being used before and during the contest for instant updates and to share stories and photos.

As the contest draws near, we’ll be posting on the OSPOTA Yahoo Group page the anticipated ‘who’s going to be at what Ohio State Park’ or ‘Planned Park’ list as we have in past years. Send your planned park activation information to PlannedParks@ospota.org . Please, include the call sign that will be us
