That was amazing propagation on 20 m band. On video you can see that I use my mobile station and his signal is strong S9+.
South shore of Big Bear lake. Was strong rain. 20m band and a lot of station in the contest. N2BJ calling CQ NA…
Worked on 50 watts. FT-857 and lovely ATAS-120 did a great job! Thanks for QSO N2BJ!
Good propagation on 10 m band. Worked with ZL, VK, JA, FK from the middle of Death Valley, California
Mobile set-up: FT-857 and ATAS-120.
Check this video. I’m at club station WA6IRC in Field Day 2011 near Big Bear Lake, California. Operate on VHF and UHF bands.
Check it out. My mobile station at home. Rig is FT-857 and antenna is ATAS-120. As you can see there is 2 wires 2.5 m long each. It helps to get 1:1.1 SWR.
I heard many stations from east coast, CX, PU, LU and ZL on my mobile antenna.
Check my video instruction of disassemble and assemble of Baofeng UV-3R. It is easy.
