POTA: Jekyll Island Activation

Jekyll Island has always held a special place to me. It was the location of my family vacations, where I proposed to my wife, and where we had our honeymoon. So now, I am excited to be able to bring along my HF rig and operate from there during my upcoming vacation on February 20-25th, 2017.

TheĀ entire island is a state park and is recognized by World Wide Flora & Fauna Parks on the Air program (KFF-0636), US Islands Awards Program (GA006S), and Islands on the Air (NA-058).

I will primarily be operating on 40m. If my antenna will tune to other bands, I will use those as well. I will be posting updates on DXSummit.fi and Twitter @danielrsimpson. I welcome all spots.

QSL Information

I will be uploading all contacts to LOTW and eQSL. I will also be creating a special paper card with a photograph taken on the trip. I will also be creating a certificate for the activation, which will be sent electronically.

Certificates can be requested at k4drs@arrl.net. For a paper card, please send a card to Daniel R. Simpson, P.O. Box 1882, Milledgeville, GA 31059. I will cover the cost of the card and return postage.
