On 12-31-16, several members of the HacDC ARC activated the highly sought after “Sewell-Belmont House” in Washington, DC to finish off the ARRL’s year long “National Parks on the Air” (NPOTA) initiative. This initiative was run in tandem with the Centennial celebration of the National Park Service. By encouraging use of amateur radio operations from and to these NPS facilities, the initiative helped promote the unique history of each park space and demonstrated the utility and diverse nature of the amateur radio service in these highly visible public settings. Thanks to all of those who attended and assisted in this and all of the club’s “NPOTA” activations throughout the year.
