Simple Setup

Here is my simple set up for the yard:

Yaesu 857
Portable battery
A mess of cable
Small pad & pencil
Antenna is a Buddipole in corner of yard.
Set of ear buds
1 Lounge chair

I made a few contacts in the sticky heat yesterday.
As you can see it does not take much so get in the yard and have some fun.

Be sure to let me know how you make out!


  1. Hi Jim, great set up. Here the weather is very bad. Rain and thunderstorms, even a small tornado passes by. Keep the rig inside. I hope for better weather conditions. 73 Paul

  2. Hi Paul, Hope the weather gets nice for you. Keeps the rigs nice and dry.
    Best Regards - Jim
