This weekend I was able to spend time setting up my Yeasu 817ND HF Ham Radio. I recently bought a Buddiepole Antenna. Both are portable and pretty simple to use. I have not worked with the 817ND for a while since I had lost interest for the most part.
This year I am working to make it a goal to learn more and get out more with it. It is also my goal to be the Radio Merit Badge Counselor so, I need to brush up. Here is a quick video of working the 40m Band.
I have created a Facebook Page about Scouting & Ham Radio if you would like to follow.
