Making contacts | Portable QRP ham radio | Minimal equipment | Yaesu FT-817nd

For this trip out I needed to carry as little weight as I could so this gave me chance to focus a little more on antenna theory to get the most out of the QRP radio via the dipole antenna I took with me.

I would be very grateful if you could make a small donation to my paypal account, this helps me keep the channel running, many thanks
