On my way to my class in Raleigh yesterday I had fun activating my 32 park NC K-3848 Weymouth Woods Sandhills Nature Preserve. I introduced my self to the attended to let him know I was there to do amateur radio then after I set up the ranger came by. I let him know I had checked in. He thanked me for doing that. Unlike the last two activations no swr issues on 20 and 40. Tip try throwing your rope backwards to get it on the limb you want. I had a blast. KO4GOM of Pinehurst came by and introduce himself. I encouraged him to upgrade and get active again. Paper logs make it easier to catch multiple stations. Thanks to the hunters and p2p.
