Whether you operate SOTA, Field Day, or just setup in the back yard, operating portable HF radio is more popular than ever. In this session we will apply the light weight backpacker’s approach to compact, portable antennas including the new trail friendly PackTenna Mini. Wire antennas are simple to build if you know a few basic design techniques. In addition to the antenna, we will also look at new light weight battery technology, solar power and other operating accessories.
