NPOTA Tops the Million-QSO Mark

The ARRL says it has exceeded its goal for the National Parks on the Air (NPOTA) program, a year-long special activity in 2016 to help celebrate the centennial of the National Park System. According to the ARRL Letter, "activators" operating ham stations from national parks, monuments and historic sites around the US surpassed the one-million-contact mark in mid-December. Program administrator Sean Kutzko, KX9X, called NPOTA "one of the most popular events in the history of the League." The program ends today, December 31.
