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 as we can, together!
The activators who took part in the discussion of the format and dates of the event made a join decision that we will celebrate the Nebraska Parks Centennial on the Air during two week-long events in spring and fall of this year.
Spring Activation Event: May 10-16
Fall Activation Event: September 6-12
We are still looking for more activators to join our ranks! If you would like to participate in our event, please get in touch with me using the form on the bottom of this page. Please also let me know what parks are you planning to activate and when – soon maps for spring and fall activation events will be published for convenience of the activators and hunters.
The dates are set!
The dates for both Spring and Fall Activation Events are now set – thank you all who participated in the discussion! Please send me your activation plans (what park(s) and when) so that I can put them together on the map!
Voting for the dates
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.
Results of the event format survey
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!
Discussing the event format
We are 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.
