RaDAR – ZS4 One hour sprint

An hour to go, time to make my way into the field.


This was an ideal opportunity to test the kit with in pack battery supply, the Rossi. I store it at the base of the pack with a sponge between it and the rig’s camera bag to absorb shock while traveling.

Not too far from home, around 100 meters in fact (Endomondo logged 3.5 kilometers getting there), I put up the ZS6BKW open wire fed dipole using my painters poles for the mast.


Deployment times were fast but I think it’s time to start building my magnetic loop – my next project.

The pack is very compact, it’s a good thing forcing the weight down. I have to make a plan with all those cables though!


I made a few contacts and always great to do some in CW too!
