Hotel operating from AZ, I worked about 12 stations, including
2 others with NorCal 40 rigs.
Antenna - ~ 44' random wire - out of hotel window to tree or bush
ATU - from pg. 167 of Solid State Design (40 meter tuner)
SWR meter - from pg.150 SSD
Mini keyer - N6KR design
Key - tiny switchcraft SPDT lever switch
Counterpoise - 20' wire hanging down out of window (conn. to ATU gnd)
Ground - hotel AC outlet ground connection (conn. to ATU gnd)
Power - 2 lantern batteries,
Rig - NC-40 rig w/Stereo phones
(ATU = Antenna Tuning Unit)
The entire station, except batteries, fits in a small cassette
I did not check into the Northeast QRP Net on Sat. morning from AZ.
The only station I heard on the net was W8MVN/QRP but he was obviously
not listening for weak stations.....Darn !!.... He was 599, I was
very frustrated !!
