1200+ Mile Contact on 10 Meter Handheld
As Hams, we know the phrase “A little goes a long way” is very true in Ham Radio. Anyone working QRP can tell you that. There are people that have worked the other side of the planet with just a few watts. I worked Japan once with 5 watts with Grayline. But check out this video of 1200+ mile contact on a handheld.I didn’t even know they made 10 meter handhelds. But we can see one here in the video. As well as making that contact with just 5 watts of power. Not too shabby at all. I say keep this video handy for recruitment. This shows how radio can work.
Excellent. And for 3 watts in/out of a 2 1/2′ rubber ducky…he’s got himself a heck of a neat radio.
Very Cool! I’ve been working Europe from Ohio on 10 meters with my FT-817 and a MP-1 outside my apartment.
That’s excellent work and congratulations!!! I worked Europe and South Africa with 500mW’s. Working QRP and QRPp is very exciting.
Wow I didn’t know they made any hf handhelds … what an awesome qso!
I’ve actually got one of those HTs. It’s a Magnum 1012, so you can run it on 12m too if you like. Does SSB/AM/FM. No tone though. Going to play with it this weekend on the 10m contest and see what I can do.
Always dreamed of a QSO like this with only a “walky talky”. I knew this radio was available. Think of purchasing one. Really great video and QSO. 73, Bas
