UPDATE: TNPOTA Activation (30-31 July 2022)

Juan Lopez

TLARC Members,

Yesterday went well. It was great to work several TLARC members and get them in the log. We hit our mark of 300+ QSOs for the Day 1 activation. We got wet and Murphy stopped by for a short visit. We stayed focused and pushed through though. We are recalibrated for Day 2 today. Try to work us today.  

Details are below if you are planning to make a visit. Don’t forget we have a 5 QSO rule for TLARC members that visit us today 😉
