am free for Field Day this year (how did it happen?)
so I’m going to operate QRP 1B-battery. The lure of
10 points per QSO is pretty strong. Does anyone have
any recommendations for setting up a station? I have
the KX3, so the radio is not a problem. I need to do
a little site survey, but where I am considering I can
set up a near vertical long wire. As a second
antenna, I was thinking about hanging a very large
horizontal loop for NVIS.
read some of the information that Terry WA0ITP posted
in the past, i.e., call CQ, don't act like you're QRP,
and just go for it. Sound advice.
my laptop, a Macbook Air, only lasts 5 or 6 hours on
its battery. It's legal to power the computer with a
generator, but I don't have one. Maybe I should try
to find a 12 volt inverter to charge from the car
battery? I checked with ARRL a few years ago and this
is legal, as long as you don't use the motorized
generators to power the radio.
