Portable Ham Radio

I’ve been a licensed Amateur Radio operator since I was 13 years old. In that time, I’ve discovered my primary enjoyment in the hobby is to operate portable, often with very low power (QRP). Taking my gear in a backpack and setting up on top of a mountain or on an island, making contacts through satellites, or even on the beach of a foreign county, my enjoyment comes from taking the minimal about of equipment necessary and establishing a temporary station anywhere. It’s fun, part of an active lifestyle, and allows me to enjoy my hobby even though I live in an apartment.
