The Tallahassee Amateur Radio Society (TARS) will be celebrating the 475th Anniversary of the pre-American Spanish Explorer Hernando DeSoto’s (c.1496/1497–1542) first winter encampment in the “new world” by operating a Get On the Air (GOTA) Station at Myers Park, on DeSoto Park Drive just south-east of downtown Tallahassee – the site of DeSoto’s camp, according to archaeological record. The GOTA station will operate Saturday, January 4th, from about 7:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Everyone is invited and will have an opportunity to talk to hams from all over the world.
