Welcome to Ham Radio Adventures

The purpose of this website is to share information on some of the most interesting places I have visited as an activator for the World Wide Flora & Fauna (WWFF) and the Parks on the Air (POTA) programs.  My main interest with regard to these two programs is in combining my love for nature with my love for portable radio.  

Both the WWFF and POTA programs encourage amateur radio operators throughout the world to set up their portable stations in places such as parks, recreational areas, game lands, nature conservation areas, etc.  A broad range of awards is available for both hunters and activators.

My traveling companion Quincey and I are privileged to share our  adventures below, in hope that our readers might be inspired to seek out their own special wild places.
