“Faith Hannah and Hope (AE4FH and KM4IPF, respectively) wanted to make a video about getting ready for the approach of Hurricane Matthew. They recently acquired an Alpha Antenna AlphaLoop Magnetic Loop antenna and they took it, along with the Amateur Radio go box they and their siblings assembled, and a battery, to a local park to see if they could make some contacts around the State of Florida on 40 meters. In spite of very poor band conditions and only running 20-30 watts, they made several contacts throughout the state.
Thankfully, the hurricane did not do much damage to our home and the set-up was not needed, but it is always a good idea to be prepared.
The kids have a website where they share videos and stories of their ham radio adventures.”
