While many U.S. and Canadian radio amateurs are preparing for the ARRL Field Day on 23-24 June 2018, our friends in Australia got an early start with the John Moyle QRP portable Field Day event earlier this year.
In this video, Peter Parker (VK3YE) takes his Yaesu-817 QRP HF/VHF transceiver to a nearby beach, assembles a simple end-fed wire, adjusts his ATU (antenna tuning unit), and proceeds to collect some interesting contacts on the 80, 40, and 20 meter Amateur Radio bands. The set up is ultra simple and entirely portable. Peter located his antenna near the water's edge and got some excellent propagation for his low-powered signal.
