via the ARRL: Amateur Radio Helping to Celebrate National Park Service Founders Week

Amateur Radio operators across the US are taking portable communications gear to more than 80 different National Park Service units during NPS Founders Week, August 22-28. They are participating in ARRL’s National Parks on the Air (NPOTA) event, which has been running all year long in parallel with the NPS Centennial. ARRL is the National Association of Amateur Radio in the United States.

“The National Park Service Centennial year has been a major celebration of some of our country’s national and historic treasures, and Amateur Radio is proud to play a small part in recognizing Founders Day on August 25, and throughout the entire week,” said ARRL spokesman Sean Kutzko.
