The Texas State Parks On The Air (TSPOTA) is sponsored each year by the Northwest Amateur Radio Society to encourage contacts between Texas amateur radio operators and amateur radio operators throughout the world. This event is an excellent opportunity for park hunters to add to their list of Texas State Parks, Natural Areas, and Historic Sites worked. The contest is scheduled for the first full weekend in April (6th).
A certificate suitable for framing is available to confirm that you have worked all the parks, natural areas, and historic sites on the list. To qualify for the certificate, send QSL cards to verify your contacts with all 99 parks since January 1, 2013.
For more information on both the contest and the certificate, see the Texas State Parks On The Air website. http://www.tspota.com
