Abstract: Carter Craigie, N3AO, will give a demonstration and presentation about operating ham radios outdoors for fun and challenge! Learn about contacting far away places with VERY little power. He will bring an extensive array of equipment: 4-5 low power transceivers, battery power supplies, antennas and feedlines, 4-5 paddle sets, and an extendable mast. Everything he brings will be able to fit into a backpack! All rigs will be opened for inspection and passed around. Participants will learn how to send the letters "CQ," and the numbers "73" in Morse Code. Carter will talk about fun Contests for Low Power (QRP) operation, and give "Tales from the Trails - Appalachian Trail in PA, MD, and VA, and more..."
