Fun at the beach

Or how to also find a reason to clean your antenna afterwards. I went down to Surfside beach
to play a little bit in the ARRL 10M contest on Sunday and try out my new portable setup. It’s
not perfect yet as it still relies on power from the car so need to add some solar panels and
batteries. The TS-440S that I got by accident the day before played well.

Having a nice view on the beach AND working DX? Oh yeah.
