Need much advice please KC3EDP on 4/4/16
QRP is a blast and I am making lots of contacts with 5 watts. I have only three pieces of equipment and they work very well. 1) Yaesu 857D turned down to 5 watts 2) Deep cycle battery 3) Alpha Magnetic Coax Loop Antenna. With just these three items I can quickly (5min) setup anywhere, usually a park picnic table. I live in Bradenton, FL and have made contacts with good signal reports to Wisconsin, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Tennessee, etc. As far as antennas go, I love the Alpha Loop because it sets up in a few minutes. Keep it simple and have fun. N4BDK
