On April 1-2, 2023, we conducted the first annual Georgia State Parks on the Air event.  The event is quite simple: merging the list of official state parks as published by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources with the list of Georgia parks at http://pota.app yields 50 parks within the state.  The objective of this contest is to enlist enough individual hams, clubs, and ARES groups to fan out across the state and activate all 50.
