Summer is here

Set up for a few days in the beautiful Texas Hill Country. First QSO was with Martin, OK1WCF on 20m PSK-31
running 30w into the newly acquired Buddipole. I know, not quite QRP, but it worked :).

My ioIO antenna for 2m and 70cm. Not much activity (or should I say none) on 2m SSB.

The Buddipole on the long mast as a vertical. Note that guying is a must!
