This is a dirt lot just off of US 19/98 and just across the EM80 grid line.

There is often a semi tractor trailer parked there; he was just leaving when I arrived. There's plenty of room even if his truck is still there.

Driving directions: Use your GPS to the coordinates. No street names and it's easy to miss. Take US 98 about 7 miles south of Perry.

Ochlockonee Bay 1

This is a boat ramp on the south shore of Ochlockonee Bay.

Driving directions: 12 Coastal Hwy, Panacea, FL 32346

Restrictions: No restrictions. I operated from before dark to early morning with no issues. I did have a couple of inquires about my activities, all positive. When you tell them you are bouncing radio signals off of meteor trails they are amazed.

St. Bernard SP 1

See the St. Bernard State Park website or call 504-682-2101 for fees or to make reservations.

This terrain is all pretty flat. 6m and 2m worked well. Jeff WB8LYJ was here April 2021.
