If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=avGBTzWAqbo.  This is post 2264 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

Thanks to Julian (OH8STN) for this excellent guide to off grid ham radio operations.  The information will be of particular interest for those operating at ARRL Field Day sites (homebound, mostly because of COVID-19), portable locations, and at emergency facilities.

This video would make an excellent presentation for your next radio club meeting or ham radio license class.

Here are some general comments from Julian:

"Hello Operators. Todays video is very special, since it answers many of the questions we've asked about portable ham radio off grid. Operating a ham radio station off grid and or in the field is not something to be taken lightly. We need to look at our field communication goals, how long we're going to be out there, the type of equipment we need in the field, and battery power for our ham radio, when off grid or in the field. If you're a ham radio beginner or seasoned veteran adding additional skills and capabilities to your station, you're going to love this series. 73 Julian #oh8stn #hamradio #offgrid Mentioned in the video: Portable power & field communictions: https://oh8stn.org/blog/2020/05/14/po...
