Default Portable HF

Just saw this message on another forum (hfpack). The station posting is located in Tennessee. I don't know what Remi was doing or specifics, but I suspect he was vehicle portable at 200W 'cause I don't remember him mentioning that he has a QRP or second portable HF rig. So either he was working from his truck or he can move the radio out to a table or something. I know he has a Buddipole portable dipole setup when stationary. So my guess is this was on Remi's end a TS-480 into a Buddipole on 20m.

I think it's neat to watch his progress, hope you do too.

Remi, it was a pleasure working you!
