Wowie Dave! I am very impressed with your "pedestrian mobile" operation. I imagine that the batteries are quite heavy and you can only do this while 'power lasts...to the last mAh...or time to go QRP ! (and carry the CW key when it comes to that).

I look forwards to working you on the WARC bands as well. Keep up the spirit of amateur radio - I'm going to let some of our young "hammies" see some of your videos - I'm sure they will be inspired.

Very best of luck and good dx-ing....keep your eyes out for gawking motorists!

Hi there Dave. we've spoken a few times however heard you this morning booming in here just south of Alicante airport.
I'm really interested in your pedestrian set up especially the matching network to the 'ground'or in your case adjacent to the best earth possible in salt water. Is your system mono band and how do you get the earth resistance low with the matching system ? I noticed you had an MFJ artificial earth with one of your set ups,presumably with a 1/4 wave vertical. I'm thinking of using a loop tuner by MFJ with home made wire loop but grounding not so important in my case. What would you recommend bearing in mind this is good vertical polarisation within 2 or 3 metres of the waters edge ...cheers Ken :!cool:

Hello Dave. What a nice web site ! I was really quite happy to have worked you from Senegal in 2011 first in bicycle then in pedestrian ! What a good surprise threw the pile-up. I keep your QSL cards preciously in my special 6V7Q QSL album, and this trip allowed me to work pedestrian, bicylcle, cars, ship and aeronautical stations !!!! Just missed ISS hi but I must confess that working a pedestrian and bicylcle station made me quite happy ! Dave, I wish to work you again soon. Best regards from Seb F8IJV/6V7Q

Daves reply: Seb...Thank you so much for your comments .. A real pleasure to work you both pedestrian mobile and bicycle mobile in Senegal :D

Hi Dave! Thank you for the contact. It was very nice talking to you and Gene on 14.200. However I forgot to ask you how much power you are using on any given day. And what is the most power you can run from it? Again so good to talk with you and I hope to talk we you again. 73 See You On The Radio! :D :D

Daves reply: Hi Bill I was using 100 Watts tonight but the set up is capable of 300 Watts maximum power, however that runs the batteries down quickly! :!thinking:
