Friday afternoon outing

July 31, 2010

If you follow me on “Twitter” or noticed the comments “Bob said on Twitter” on the top right side of your screen you will know that I headed out in the afternoon to test out an 88 foot doublet and a home brewed 4:1 balun…

Now you get a little more detail…

I walked over to Hutton Park which is about a 10 min walk from home and set up…

[The radio was my FT 817 with my LDG QRP Autotuner and I set up at the baseball diamond at the park…

Anyway although the band conditions were not the best the antenna loaded up on 10-80m with no problems and did load up even on 160m but the tuner did fight it a bit…

Contacts were made on 40m and stations were heard on 20 and 80m…

It was an hour well spent…
