Simple Ham Radio Antennas--NY2MC ham radio backpack HAMS IN THE WOODS 3


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this address into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/Xu4WME5GUjQ.  A very nice and well-thought out backpack station from Mickey Corenetto (NY2MC). Mickey's portable rig includes a Yaesu 857D transceiver, a 22-amp gel cell for power, a Chameleon random wire antenna, a 2-meter vertical, and a LDG tuner (Z-11).  This portable system can be used for emergency use, as well as operating in deed-restricted houses and apartments. This backpack system can be set up and broken down in a matter of minutes.  You could also pack another end-fed wire or dipole antenna if you wanted better performance.  For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars.
