OSPOTA - Ohio State Parks On The Air - Amateur Radio Contest

The purpose of OSPOTA is to promote public awareness of amateur radio and Ohio's beautiful state parks system; to contribute to the recognition that Ohio has a very diverse and wonderful ecology; and to promote camaraderie within the ranks of Ohio's Amateur Radio operators.

The objective is to have competing stations operating from as many of Ohio's 74 state parks as possible. Note: Non-Ohio stations may work only Ohio stations located in an Ohio State Park; Ohio stations not located in an Ohio State Park may only contact stations operating from an Ohio State Park.
