More 28 MHz QRP pedestrian mobile contacts. Post #1411.

Here's another great video from Peter Parker (VK3YE).  In this video, Peter goes pedestrian mobile on a sunset beach near Melbourne, Australia.  Even with 5 watts output from his Yaesu-817 and a homebrew magnetic loop antenna, Peter was able to make some impressive contacts. Of course, walking alone a beach with the ocean only a short distance away, probably helped launch a decent signal.  Peter has several interesting pedestrian mobile and stealth antennas you may find interesting. Just go to vk3ye.com to see what Peter is doing.

Speaking of mobile antennas, please check out this article by Paul Signorelli (W0RW):  "Pedestrian Mobile Whip".  You can find this fascinating post at https://www.eham.net/articles/40538.
