#Morsecode is so MUCH FUN & can be very ECITIING. Especially when I can impersonate #seamanjones, "The Hunt for Red October" with my HUNT for #K1NF. There are times when patience is on your side. #AmateurRadio #hamradio #pota #parksontheair

@Josefius yes sir it sure does. I usually get almost an hour of use before it dies. I've got 4 I purchased from Harbor Freight

@N4JAW@mastodon.radio avatar

@Josefius Mine are rechargeable.

@Josefius I've been amazed when conditions are good the QSOs I've made with my 40,30 and 30 using those batteries. Last summer worked 3 hours o. 40 and 20 meters with them

@Josefius Lately, I've been running 20m WSPR with the QCX mini at 200 mW WSPR beacon has picked me up all over the US, Canada, Japan, VK land, and most of Europe

My POTA flag caught the attention of the U.S. Coast Guard while patrolling the Ohio River during my P2P QSO with Dave at US-0679 Fire Island National Seashore, Long Island, NY to the banks of the Ohio River.

@F4JWJ At one time I used a Camo tarp. It is so drab and dull. This tablecloth add some life and vitality to my portable activities.

Noticed that Hamvention created a lot of buzz about Josh & @Tuftelndotnet For 2 years, I've used his 40/20 Linked EFHW specifically for my @qrplabs & . This combination has garnered hundreds of QSOs. This is just one of Josh's products I use. I have nothing but praise for his quality products.

@croyle When I'm using my FT817 I don't attach my recorder. It's just laying on top of the rig. Today, my GoPro was close enough to capture the audio.

@N4JAW@mastodon.radio avatar

@kb9ens Thanks. I've had lots of practice over the years. Seems like yesterday when I used to hear "Dad, Dad, Dad ...... 😅

@Josefius@mastodon.radio avatar

@qrper I turned on my radio when I came home for lunch today when you were on 20 meters, however I didn't even see any activity on 14.074 (FT8) on the scope. Did we have another solar flare hit?

@qrper @Josefius treacherous to say the least.
