Hello friend, I’m HI5YJM

I have acquired a QYT-KT8900 V / U radio, an inexpensive radio and a LIFEFO4 Miady Battery to work with the yagi VHF Antenna Experimenting with a UHF antenna and antenna which I am testing for the next SOTA activation in my country Dominican Republic HI waiting for it to finish the curfew by the COVID-19 to be able to move to the summits …

Looks like that’s nice and light. If your summit has commercial transmitters perhaps you might be troubled by break-through? Watch out for that. You might want to consider also simple light-weight vertical omnis, often discussed on here, such as a roll-up Slim JIM or J-Pole.

I wonder if anybody in KP4 might be persuaded to try a VHF activation from any of the summits at the western end of Purto Rico to try for S2S to HI?
