SOTA Southern Desert Region Antenna Selection

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: This is post 2596 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas. Thanks to Jerry (KG6HQD) for this truly outstanding guide to SOTA (Summits On The Air) antennas and related equipment. If you like to combine camping, hiking, and amateur radio operations, then this video is for you. Jerry discusses not only basic equipment requirements, but also outlines what camping gear you should take with you if you plan to operate in remote areas. Here are a few comment from Jerry: Every so often we need to slow down and enjoy the process. In this video I make a concerted effort to slow my entire process down until I get a little pile up. Spent a lot more time on this summit than normal and mat have found a new way to activate my SOTA peaks. I show some portable QRP antennas I use and talk about a few ham radio tricks and tips. Hope you enjoy and please rem
