I was able to get out for a little while today. I worked a little FT-8, and had planned to do some voice. I started to get a little rain, which I was prepared for. But then the rain picked up and I had to disassemble.

The major station components this year consisted of:

  • Lab599 Discovery TX500 QRP HF transceiver
  • Chameleon MPAS 2.0 antenna in SS-17 vertical configuration
  • MFJ-9201 QRPocket manual antenna tuner
  • Panasonic CF-19 rugged laptop
  • K0TX Digirig Mobile v1.6 radio to computer interface
  • Bioenno BLF-1230A battery in a Powerwerx MegaBox
  • Powerwerx FSP-110W solar panels and MPPT-150-14.6 charge controller
