Parks on The Air (POTA) activity is a great success. There are only three parks officially registered in the Albuquerque area:
(1.) Petroglyphs National Monument,
(2.) Rio Grande Nature Center, and
(3.) Cibola National Forest (Sandia Mountains). After registering yourself on the POTA website, you can become an Activator at any of these “parks” or be a Hunter seeking those Activators. Activators must make contact with at least 10 hunters to be consider an activation…and follow very specific steps, shown on its website, in reporting your contacts. Hunters need not submit anything.
