OK this guy has me inspired to take a vacation to a remote location with my HF rig.

In my region I can drive a car up to 6000ft. 

Time to get mobile power squared away.

While that's a horrible photo, even by 2009 standards, there's proof I bicycled up to that point in Mt. Rainier national park.  That reminds me how much better shape I could be in.

Oh man, it's gonna be cool, but of strictly academic importance for us coastal plains dwellers!  Maybe use is on my next trip to Birmingham.

On the other hand while you coastal folks have hurricanes I live within 100 miles of 3 volcanoes.

Yikes, that may be more elevation than you bargained for!

Mmm, I do yearn for some "high elevation" that doesn't mean "anything above 20 feet over sea level."

Awesome Podcast that has inspired me to get my butt moving on a HF Rig. Some of you might have remembered that I was build a go box with a FT-857D but things fell apart money wise. Well that was until I started listening to the podcast and caught the HF package starter deal with Main Trading Company. I bucked up and bought the HF Set-up which was my end goal. Now I can be an active member of AmRRON!

Stay Safe and catch you on the airwaves!

Thanks SCW!  I may be getting into remote operating in a couple of years, and Pignology seems to make it much easier.  Very informative about a corner of ham that I know knew little about.

Meant to say SCWoverine here.  Nothing against you Smurf, but that came out weird.  I blame it on late night typing.

You're welcome, and no worries on the return card.  Still got a stack myself to fill out and send from last Sunday.

Yeah, I wanted to go to the Dry Tortugas, but the timing was wrong for me.  I think I'm going to try a gulf beach trip this fall sometime.

Listened on the commute today, interesting stuff.  Considering that the nearest mountain that qualifies is a six hour drive for me... I'll look into chasing and IOTA!  Did learn a lot though.

Oddly, the interviewee mentioned that few SOTA folks do PSK31, but it was a SOTA guy's video and blog post of how to use an iOS device (http://kd0bik.com/blog/an-ipad-psker-ios-app-and-kx3-fun/) that sort of dragged me kicking and screaming into PSK31.

Anyway SCW, thanks, will listen to the second part in a bit.

Hi,

I know nothing about Ham but can BBQ the hell out of it. Subscribed to your podcast and hope to learn a couple of things before getting a hand held to listen to. Maybe I will get my card if I get the bug later. Good luck guys with your podcast.

It's a Great Hobby and I hope my feeble efforts will continue to help it grow!

Just listened to all episodes......Nice job on the podcast!
Got my name in to late for the give away though......bummer.

Had no idea that you guys could do all that stuff with a radio, WOW! Had a bit of trouble following along with some of that stuff but sounds like a lot of fun.

Keep up the good work,

John
