Warm Weather is Here, and
So Are The Ticks
After a hard winter of cold temps and snow, warmer weather is finally arriving. Many of us like to operate outdoors, whether it be from a park bench or high atop a mountain top. SOTA has become a fun addition to our radio hobby. Hiking up wooded trails to get to a favorite spot to operate appeals to the adventure in many of us. But with the adventure comes the danger of tick bites, or other health issues from pests in the woods.
Below is a website that's packed with good tips on how to stay safe on the trails.
