I need to take the "Big Dog" #ft891 out more often. It handles the bands so smoothly into an #EFHW using the #tenntenna 49:1 transformer and easy sending #morsecode using the American Morse Equipment #ultraportapaddle #hamradio #amateurradio #pota #parksontheair

Rough day for most #pota #parksontheair activators no matter the band. Even tough for #sota operators. Still nice to enjoy a beautiful day. #amateurradio #hamradio #morsecode #ultraportapaddle #ft891 #buddipole #buddipoleyagi

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. #amateurradio #hamradio #cwoperator #morsecode #qrpradio #hb1b #ultraportapaddle #pota #parksontheair

This combination of the @Youkits #hb1b & #ultraportapaddle seem to make a great pair for #amateurradio #hamradio #cw #morsecode #parksontheair #pota activations I think the deer like it too

Lots of on 40 meters this morning but it was busy. About to wrap up this activation. At 830 EDT it's 83°. It's a Glenn Frey Axel Foley Day "The Heat is On"

No Giraffes for today's #pota #parksontheair activation but plenty of deer and fawns. #AmateurRadio #hamradio #MorseCode #CWwoperator #AmericanMorse #ultraportapaddle @Youkits #hb1b
