RaDAR – The bare minimum

It’s amazing, you may not get that many contacts but the ones you do make hold a lot of value when using the absolute bare minimum. My humble ham radio station used during the Christmas weekend.


Then there is the Reverse beacon Network that can give you some surprising feedback. My friend Greg N4KGL alerted me on the RBN response. What and awesome “Christmas present” …. not bad for probably less than 3W into a 40m end fed hanging in a nearby tree!

Last night’s most interesting results ….. Dirk ZS1X also called me and we had a short QSO. He gave me a 539 and his signal was so strong I had to move my headphones from my ears!!!
