50 MHz QRP with various modes
This time I'm at home using about the most modest antenna you can get - a vertical dipole for 50 MHz (which doubles as an extended double zepp on 2m). I try various modes on 6m with 5w from an FT817. Very happy with the results.
And for more on the antenna enjoy this video.
PS: I've now written six books on various aspects of amateur radio. Whether you experiment with antennas, enjoy QRP or are starting out in radio there's a book for you. Find out more here.
