Let’s go fly a kite

December 8, 2018 0 By mark

it was windy enough today to try out my Chameleon Emcomm II on the river. Unfortunately too windy and gusts so the antenna wire kept dipping in the water.

But I got the kite up in the air and could hear some stations on 20m so it’s working fine.

i have also finished setting up my portable trolly with Artificial ground and 5m whip, almost spoke to a station in Italy – he heard party of my callsign when I replied but I wasn’t able to complete a qso.

The only thing left to do is secure the battery box and have an external power connection so it doesn’t need to be open.
