POTA Picnic Table

What exactly is a “POTA”?

Parks on the Air (POTA) is an international radio sport award program that encourages licensed amateur radio operators to visit, enjoy and operate portable equipment in a variety of parks and public lands, always respecting other park users and local regulations. POTA issues awards to participants based on a wide range of criteria including the total number of radio contacts made, number made on each amateur radio band, and for different modes of communication including voice, Morse code or FT8.

GARS has a POTA weekend scheduled on the third weekend of each month, usually Saturdays.

NEXT EVENT

Our next GARS POTA will be on April 27, 2024.

We’ll be setting up at the Colusa-Sacramento River SRA, about 65 miles north of Sacramento near the town of Colusa on the west bank of the Sacramento River. We’ll have a BBQ so please RSVP below.

From Interstate 5 & Hwy 20 go nine miles east to the town of Colusa. The park entrance is north of the intersection of Levee St and 10th St in Colusa.
