I enjoy Rapid Deployment Amateur Radio, Field Days, QRP, satellites, and CW. I have many friends in the hobby that make it fun. I will keep you posted on what I learn about amateur radio on this blog.

N4KGL Rocket Beacon Dummy Load Test
Here is the beacon transmitter dummy load test setup using 9 V battery. The output is 1 watt but I can see it degrade after 20 minutes or so. I also placed my IC 703 nearby and could hear the signal at 14.060. See video.
