Primary battery died after 2nd QSO during today's #QRP #MorseCode #pota #parksontheair activation. Used internal #FT817 battery with different #Buddipole configurations. Not bad for 2.5 watts #QRPRADIO

@N0ZB Both Vertical Random Wire and EFHW performed the same. Last night I had packed 40 and 20 meter but got solar data alerts early this morning so I switched to to have more band options. I needed all of them to activate site as bands were horrifically unstable.
