Walmart Parking Lots on the Air 2019

The 2nd Annual WMPLOTA will take place starting 6th July 2019 at 00:00 UTC and ending 7th July 2019 at 23:59 UTC.

WMPLOTA is now held annually on the first weekend in July. The first weekend in July was chosen for WMPLOTA, putting it forevermore in temporal proximity to 2nd July, the birthday of Walmart when Sam Walton opened the first store in Rogers, Arkansas in 1962.

WMPLOTA is a special event and award scheme for Amateur Radio satellite operators that encourages the practice of portable operation in the ubiquitous and easily accessible location of Walmart parking lots.
