It’s been a few months since I have taken the time to get out and “go play radio.” So I rounded up my totes with radio gear and went to the North Kirkland Community Park here in Kirkland and set up my antenna and transceiver.
It was a good day. The weather was warm but not hot. Setting up the antenna was easy enough. I made about six or seven contacts, all across the United States.
I hope to head out to the Evergreen State Fairgrounds in Monroe, Washington, again soon. I like that I can park out there and set up a 20 meter (wavelength) half-dipole between two tall masts. That helps with signal strength.
