I am excited to get out into the woods and enjoy some time away from the city. I’ll be camping with my wife and her extended family which is something we look forward to every year. This year we will be spending a little more time up at the campsite, which will give me a chance to play radio for a bit while we are there. This will be my first camp-site portable operation so I am sure I will have lots of things to improve upon for future outings – however, I think that I am reasonably well prepared.
With any luck, the solar weather will cooperate – I have no good way of checking the conditions outside of keying-up on a local repeater and asking anybody who is monitoring. Fingers crossed.
I will be trying mostly digital stuff on 20m though I may try other bands as well (using my G5RV jr).
