Nebraska State Parks Centennial Celebration

In 2021, the Nebraska State Parks celebrate their centennial anniversary. To commemorate this milestone in the spirit of the Parks on the Air program, the amateur radio community plans to join efforts and put as many Nebraska parks on the air! Date and format are being discussed and will be announced in early 2021.

At the present time, we are collecting information about potentially interested amateur radio operators who live in Nebraska, or would be willing to drive to a Nebraska park on the date(s) of the event to activate it. Further updates will appear on this page, and will be communicated to the interested activators by email.

[UPD Dec 25, 2020] We are also discussing the format of the future event at this time. You can provide your feedback and suggestions by filling a short survey, and we will be in touch with you with the results and further plans.

[UPD Feb 16, 2021] The survey is now closed, and the results are in! The event will be two week-long activation periods, one in spring or early summer, and another in late summer or fall. We will now begin discussing the dates. Stay tuned!

[UPD Apr 21, 2021] We are currently looking at potential dates for both planned activation periods. If you would like to provide your input, please fill in the survey based on your personal preferences.
