I made ten contacts through satellite SO-50 to successfully activate
this park for the National Parks on The Air (NPOTA) contest. Bodie
Island (pronounced “body”) is on the Cape Hatteras National Seashore
which is the actual national park (not the lighthouse, which is just
in it). The park is on the Outer Banks barrier islands of North
Carolina. There are several lighthouses on the Outer Banks and all of
them are beautiful.

Stations contacted:

01 KO4MA EL88
02 N8HM/W3ZM FM18
04 W5CBF EM30
05 W4FS FM06
06 K5ND EM12
07 KC9ELU EM79
08 KI4RO EM88
09 N8RO EM00
10 CY9C FN97

I technically made 11 contacts as Paul, N8HM, also used the AMSAT-NA
club call, W3ZM, at the end of our contact. (Go listen again, he’s
sneaky with it ;-) )
