One of the joys of Amateur Radio is to "go into the field" and operate with the bare minimum of equipment--a perfect way to train for emergency communications.

In this video, Carl (2E0EZT) shows us how he operates under field conditions using an easily made half-wave end-fed antenna (EFHW).

Here are some of Carl's general remarks:
