Venue
Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve , Strong City, 66869

On Saturday, May 14, 2022, from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m., Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve will be making waves that will be heard around the country--and maybe even around the world. Members of the Santa Fe Trail Amateur Radio Club (SFTARC) radio operators will be operating two amateur radio stations from the park. These "ham radio operators" or simply "hams" as they are often called, will exchange greetings with other amateur radio operators through a program called Parks-on-the-Air (POTA). POTA activity lets hams around the country and the world "visit" state and national parks in a virtual manner - over the air waves, calling attention to the natural and cultural resources of the Kansas prairie.
