Parks on the Air Logo

Parks on the Air (POTA) is an amateur radio program that encourages ham radio operators to operate portable equipment from designated parks around the world. The initiative aims to promote outdoor activity and awareness of protected areas while also fostering a global community of radio enthusiasts. POTA has grown in popularity due to its accessible nature, offering both new and experienced operators the chance to explore radio communications in diverse natural settings. It combines the thrill of making contact with distant operators with the enjoyment of the great outdoors, providing a unique blend of technical challenge and environmental appreciation. Participants not only get to practice their radio skills in various conditions but also contribute to a larger sense of community and shared adventure, making POTA a beloved activity among ham radio operators globally.

Rules, history and information can be found at POTA’s official website: https://parksontheair.com/
