Calling CQ POTA Parks On The Air on Phone- Park K-1023 Tomoka State Park Florida on Icom 7300

Using my Icom 7300 at Tomoka State Park. Tomoka State Park is a great destination for active ham radio operators. As part of the Parks On The Air (POTA) initiative, each year amateur radio enthusiasts visit the park with the goal of generating additional activity on the respective ham bands and making new contacts to honor this protected space. Tomoka State Park makes for an ideal POTA experience, allowing visitors to explore its natural beauty while helping to promote activation of these sometimes-less active frequencies.

Calling CQ POTA Parks On The Air on Single Sideband – Park K-1023 Tomoka State Park Florida. The correct format for calling CQ POTA on single sideband would be: [CQ POTA, CQ POTA, CQ POTA, this is (your call sign) calling CQ POTA, Parks On The Air. Park reference Kilo One Zero Two Three, Tomoka State Park, Florida. (Your call sign) is standing by and listening for any calls.] That’s a pretty formal way to call CQ POTA, so see how I like to do it in the video. Can it be improved?

Please note that it is important to give your location, park reference, and call sign clearly and slowly for effective communication. Good luck and have fun in your park activation!
One of the best parts about being a ham operator is being able to talk to other like-minded people all over the world. There are many options for mobile ham operators, whether you’re looking for a ruggedized, self-contained package that operates on battery power or something that runs on 12 volts and is more easily mounted in your vehicle.

I’m an Amateur Radio enthusiast. I love the hobby and experimenting with radios, antennas and software. I have a lot of fun. On my YouTube channel I upload videos mostly on the Icom 7300 and Icom 7610 as well as Ham Radio software programs. I hope to inspire people to get involved in Amateur Radio.
