Program: Military Pack Sets, Part II

by Joe Munson, WA4VAG

Military pack sets are quite valuable for portable and emergency communications. Erecting expedient antennas in these situations is a very practical skill to master. Joe will bring various pack sets and antennas and demonstrate their use in this hands-on program. The principles he'll discuss can be applied to not only QRP use but also to restricted ham operations such as on HOA sites, small lots, etc.
