At the beginning of 2021 I made a promise to myself to learn Morse code. And if I did, and started using it on the air, I would buy myself a present. Well, I did, and here is my present. The little bitty 40m CW transceiver hand built by Hans Summers G0UPL of QRP Labs in the UK. https://qrp-labs.com/ I have slowly been putting the kit together surrounding this neat little radio, and I'm about ready to take it out to the field. To support the antenna wire, I will mostly use the smaller, lightweight 19' fishing pole (far right in the picture of all 4 mast poles below).
BTW..... I do not make a dime from any of the links I post. If I find a product that I like, or a blog or other web site that I found to be helpful, I will post the link in case someone else might find the info useful too.
