9 January 2023 – Radio and Rucksack by Ben Lloyd, GW4BML

| January 9, 2023

Ben’s presentation

Ben will briefly explain the definition of portable operating and give reasons why portable operating has its benefits. He’ll go on to explain a little about his adventures which mainly include SOTA, working DX and contesting…all by operating portable. Ben will run through everything that is packed away in his rucksack to enable a successful activation and he’ll also share some of his adventures with everyone, with time for questions at the end.
