Deploying my Ham Radio at a Local Park. Post #754.


If you're having trouble seeing this video, please enter this title link into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/2WICcYCMJHM.  I've always enjoyed portable operations because they get me into the great outdoors, prepare me for emergency communications situations, and provide plenty of practice for the ARRL Field Day event.  In this video from Anthony ("biblesnbarbells"), we see how easy it is to organize, set up, operate, and tear down a fully functional portable amateur radio station.  Anthony selected Markham Park in Sunrise, Florida for his "mini dx-pedition."  His equipment was simple:  A Yaesu FT-817ND transceiver, a MFJ 1910 telescoping mast, an end-fed antenna, a LDG automatic tuner, and a Goal Zero solar power system.  Now's the time to practice for Field Day and have some fun on the side.  Good Luck!  For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars.  These news feeds are updated daily.  Thanks for joining us today!  Aloha es 73 de Russ (KH6JRM).
