I’ve had many questions since I started my YouTube channel awhile back on how to operate Ham Radio out in the field.
The 3 primary areas I receive questions on are Power, Antennas & their supports, & Transporting Radios.
We’re going to talk a little bit about those today, and why I use the gear that I use, hopefully to stir some interest in portable operating!
All the recent natural disasters here in the U.S. has really had me practicing my outdoor ops as of late. This is a great way to get some practice in, and to identify potential areas around your local community that you might be able to setup in.
