|Go Hiking, Riding or Backpacking with Your Rig!|
Hopefully, I will be building this section of the web site over the months and years to come so check back from time to time for a sort of "diary" account of my treks.
A good place to start, if you are interested in getting out into the woods with your rig is
the Adventure Radio Society webpage.
Rigs that I currently use are the Micro-Mountaineers and the Small Wonder's SW20+, mentioned above.
I'd also like to try some VHF mountain-topping with my Yaesu FT-817.
Radio Society Rendezvous 2001
This was great fun! I met some other hams with a "kindred spirit" for outdoor radio, rubbed shoulders with guys who will forget more than I will ever know, and stomped around in the beautiful Oregon Cascades.
|Another web site, maintained by Wes Hayward, W7ZOI, contains information and links related to backpacking and radio as well as very helpful pages concerning radio homebrewing. Wes has been quite influential at improving my ham radio "learning curve," and I'm grateful for his friendship, although I admit to being a bit jealous of his geographical location. The Pennsylvania mountains are foothills compared to the Oregon Cascades!|
Cross Country Bike Trip
Photos and commentary of a bicycling trek across the United States that two friends and I did in 2000. Ham Radio was a bit of an after thought on the trip but I did manage to bring along a QRP rig and work a few QSOs. I guess this counts as adventure radio?
