K-8010 #3

Amateur Radio, Portable, POTA

If everything goes well next month this will be my new home park. NC K-8010 McKinney Lake State Fish Hatchery.  This park has some family connections.  My father was born just down the street from the park.  I’ve spoken to the ranger a couple of times and met his dogs on this activation. This was the first time I was able to toss the throw line over the limb I wanted to place it the first time. Please take a look at the video.

A question about audio.  Early in this activation someone said I needed to add more base to my audio.  I didn’t hear a call sign but he added my audio sounded terrible.  I do have a high pitch voice and maybe he had never heard me before.  What do you think? I ignored him but if you would like to give a helpful suggestion please send me Email.  The radio I usually use is an IC-706MKIIG.  

Please follow my activities on my POTA page.  

Thanks for reading.
