I moved recently to Fair Oaks, Callifornia. We live in an HOA that restricts the use of any outside antenna. We have two state parks within three miles and a county park about a half mile away. My operating consists primarily of portable operation in the parks. I enjoy ragchewing on 40, 30 and 20 cw, CWops contest on Wednesdays when possible. My wife and I walk the park then set up the rig at a picnic table. I operating and and she enjoys sitting in sun.
Equipment: Yaesu FT 818 running 5 watts or Ten Tec Eagle running 20 watts, Brown Brothers paddle. Bioenno 6ah power supply.
Antenna: Link dipole for 20-30-40 or 20 meter vertical with one or two radials. Mast is a black widow fishing pole. (It was 20 feet until I snapped off the top three feet)
Operatering from the back seat during uncomfortable weather.
Please QSL direct.
Look forward to meeting you on the air.
