I'm loving this Mini Tuner. I test new antenna under less than ideal conditions like today to see how they perform. If they perform well then they'll likely work under ideal conditions. Heat shrink marks different bands. Hose clamps and zip ties used to connect paracord to tent stakes to support mast when elevated. Nice work during activation today.

Not only did I put the mini tuner into service but also a 28' gently used Jackite pole from Ebay for $50. @youkits

This is a new one for me. Hands were so sweaty they kept sliding off keyer paddles. Gloves didn't help. At 0830 EDT 1230 UTC it was 78° with humidity of 77%. Even the sweat was sweating.

It doesn't matter how many activations I do, I'm still amazed at the POWER of 5 watts into western Canada & Alaska on 20 meters at 9:15 a.m. EDT (1315 UTC)

Mother Nature is relentless today. 90° in the shade before noon. Horrible conditions. High and will likely get worse with approaching
