Portable Amateur Radio Operations Sunrise Park Holly Hill FL

I took my portable QRP ham radio out to Sunrise Park in Holly Hill FL along with my portable antenna to try and make contacts.

I was using a Yaesu FT-817ND, a LDG Z-817 antenna tuner, and a Chameleon Antenna MPAS portable antenna. I had the Military extension whip and spike mount options installed.

I used a Paxcess portable 12 volt power pack to provide power to my radio so that I could operate at 5 watts.

Every Wednesday the Daytona Beach Amateur Radio Association (DBARA) has members who bring portable batteries, transceivers, and antennas to a local park and they setup low power amateur radio stations.

They contact other amateur radio stations and log their success at communicating over distances while using a minimum amount of power.
