QRV Manhattan Beach, CA FT817 non ND (2001 variant)

Another wonderful day of operating beachside. Manhattan Beach is my second favorite beach although Venice is great for “Crazy Freaks” watching but this pier has the best views of surfers. My favorite is a secret location that I have been sworn to secrecy by the locals to not divulge.

Travel with your radio and have fun

Check ins into the HRO Dstar machine and the local NUT repeater was expected and acknowledged.

Antenna was a simple 20 m vertical hung over the legde with a suitable counterpoise. I changed this now to save an ounce using #26 silky wire
