Check the website for park general information and reservations. You can also get general vendor information along with the vendor grid for space rental options along with vendor applications.

FCC Goes Paperless, ARRL Predicts Licensing Headaches

FCC “Paperless” Amateur Radio License Policy Goes into Effect on February 17

(Originally posted on ARRL.org 28 Jan 2015)

Starting February 17, the FCC no longer will routinely issue paper license documents to Amateur Radio applicants and licensees. The Commission has maintained for some time now that the official Amateur Radio license authorization is the electronic record that exists in its Universal Licensing System (ULS), although the FCC has continued to print and mail hard copy licenses. In mid-December the FCC adopted final procedures to provide access to official electronic authorizations, as proposed in WT Docket 14-161 as part of its “process reform” initiatives.
