Today was a great day for working dx with QRP! 10, 12 and 15 metres
were wide open......
Cheryl, Ruby and I headed to the beach at Southampton.
While Cheryl and Ruby played I worked dx with 2.5 watts, using my Yaesu FT-817ND,
my Mini-Buddipole antenna, LDG Z-817 QRP autotuner and a 12V 7.0ah SLA battery.
Here are three photos of my outing today, one showing Chantry Island
and the Lighthouse in the background.
Also, following is part of my logbook for the day:
