Nothing Beats A Good Antenna

I just got back from Hawaii and some QRP operating. The antenna that I wanted to bring with me never made it and I ended up running just a random wire with a tuner. Not the worst setup but definitely not the best. I figured that being close to the saltwater would make compromise antenna an ‘OK’ antenna. WRONG!

Result = only 6 contacts for 2 days of operating.

…. more details and a video to come soon.
