Time to get the portable gear out once again. Batteries are charged and I'm looking forward to a bit of off road radio'n. It's also nice to know that if for some reason I'm out of cellular coverage, I still have contact with the outside world. My antenna arsenal could be a bit better, but I'll add as finances allows. I plan on doing some operating from the comforts of our camper as we work south in the coming weeks for a short break from the office. Highlight will be spending quality time with our long time friends KL1SF and KL1MF. Snow and cooler temperatures have arrived at the office, but warmer temperatures are on the horizon.
