Biography

Having fun with SOTA, QRP, DX chasing, Winter Field Day, NPOTA. Enjoy backpacking and sleeping bag portable.

For NPOTA, I used the Yaesu FT-857D with Tarheel LT 2 while mobile, and an end fed wire and fish pole while portable.

For SOTA, I use the KX3, end fed wire and fishpole, or dipole, depending on available trees, weight and time.

At home, it is the IC-7300 with OCF and fan dipoles. Now experimenting with a 160/80 Inverted L with elevated radials, and 160 dipole at 61'.

Portable use is usually link dipoles.
