SPARC will be hosting a Parks on the Air (POTA) event on October 9th at Sawgrass Lake Park. The park is located at 7400 25th Street N in St. Petersburg and opens at 7:00 AM. For those that do not know, Parks on the Air is a worldwide group to activate various State and National Parks. Sawgrass Lake Park is the result of a unique cooperative agreement between the Pinellas County Parks & Conservation Resources and the Southwest Florida Water Management District — hence its qualification for the POTA program.
For those involved in POTA, the park identifier is K-6700. Bring your own snacks. There will be a few radios set up. There isn’t power at the pavilion. The sole pavilion is on the left when you drive in. Restrooms are right near the pavilion. Everyone is invited to see how a POTA activation is done. – Lisa kc1yl
