Sunday Evening QRP

This afternoon did a quick indoor antenna setup with my 20M Par End Fed in the upstairs bedroom and to my surprise received a very nice low SWR reading of 1.5.

Ran a coax down the stairs and took over the living room coffee table with an FT857D and a portable battery. So far the band seems on the quiet side but was able to make one SSB QRP 10W contact with KE9N in Roscoe, IL.

So far I am a happy camper with this very simple setup.

This guy Is a riot!

What hurts more, AC or DC?

This is not my cup of tea but interesting to say the least.
I guess you can say don't try this at home kids (or adults).

You have to love the Geico commercials on the tube.

This ending always gets a laugh out of me.

The caveman is still a classic.

The most recent one has a few people up in arms.
All fun in my book.

OK its time to fire up a radio.
Enjoy your Sunday!
