Operating portable can mean from the top of a mountain, on the beach, in the park or anywhere except home. Maybe you have to do it because you cannot erect antennas at home, maybe there is too much electrical noise at home, or you simply want to do it for fun. Whatever, it is a challenge and can also yield great results. We will share our experiences and give ideas that we can use as the weather improves. We will follow up on this event later in the year with some practical examples outdoors at the TNMOC. If you operate /P please either bring some of your /P kit on the night, especially anything hand crafted, or send some pics before the event to firstname.lastname@example.org .
