That went together easy. Not comfortable hauling it up on the roof by myself. Going to have to wait for @KI7UXT@twitter.com to come over and help. 🤓

Sunny SoCal day for single-op portable at DM04sd for -UHF Contest (1345' ASL on Mulholland Drive). Antennas simplified this time to 6m moxon and LPDA for 2m thru 23cm.
Great to work so many rovers! Tnx to all for QSOs & 73

More fun. This time a custom spacer to hold a Wellbrook loop stub mast inside a 50mm tube. 5 minutes to design and 50 minutes to print. I love being able to just print what I need!

Does anyone have experience with a distro that's good for toddlers on up. Maybe something that can grow with them? Alpahbet games, puzzles, object identification eg. Also maybe an impact resistant cheap laptop?

@Wilfred
I seriously want to try building just such an antenna to get on 160m or something.

I don't have the real estate for a REAL 160m antenna.

I have no experience with this mini light endfed antenna, but I do have a hyendfed for 10-20-40 meters. I'm satisfied with that. I hear a lot of positive reviews about the minifed.
