Yesterday, I posted about finding a county park that could be used for contesting with verticals over salt water. There are some significant limitations with using the site; specifically, the county park is for daylight use only.
The State park site has a big limitation as well: camping from March 1st through the end of October only. That leaves out some good contests.
Here’s a picture of the high tide beach level:
This picture shows the amount of dirt needed to get to the beach from the campsite:
In the background, you can see the camp sight with the RV’s in view.
Here’s the RV’s themselves:
This site runs up against the 200-foot personal limitation for a site for the coax to reach the beach. Plus, when you can camp.
But, for the ARRL Contest, CQ WW RTTY Contest and a few others, this might be the ticket. At least you have hookups and have permission to camp.
