    From watching this, it looks like Julian OH8STN is launching another new exciting video series on self-sufficient rugged pedestrian HF operation.
    Arctic snow and ice, to the summer beach, to the lush green forest.
    He thrives anywhere.
    Julian's like "Survivor Man", but with HF radio.

    Julian is not only showing what can be done if you are adventurous, but also how you can take radio to the public. Only by being out there will the general public experience amateur radio, and despite our 'weirdo' appearances, there is plenty of public interest.

    And with ever-increasing RFI, this kind of field operation really is the kind of thing operators - and manufacturers - should now be focusing on a lot more.

    Keep the videos coming, Julian. I don't really watch anybody else's!

    I agree, Julian is reaching and attracting new generations of hams, in a way that ARRL and old codgers can only dream of.

    Totally agree! Julian and Gil (The Radio Prepper), and a couple other YouTube channels, are the reason I decided to get my ticket. I have a lot to learn but their adventures are very inspirational and I owe them a lot for introducing me to this wonderful life. 73!

    Hi Don,

    Congratulations on your new ham ticket!
    I look forward to working you on the air some time.
    Let's try 5371.5 kHz USB voice in the evening around sunset?

    Thanks, Bonnie!

    I’d love to but need time to figure out how to get a temporary antenna setup. Once I’m set I’ll see if you have time. Thanks again!!

    Julian is going to be operating digital during his trip using FT8Call. Pretty excited to be able to try it out with him. He regularly reaches North America from 65 degrees N with it, so hopefully we can spot him :)

    Julian's insight and testing are awesome. Now I know how to evaluate other authors.

    One of the comments on a previous OH8STN article connected me to low cost portable and fold-able solar panels.

    Using that mental filter, I chose a battery fabricator that is a ham, and makes radio-quiet LiFePO4 batteries that are 30AH, deliver 40.5A bursts for SSB for my KW 480HX, have two sets of leads so they can be charging while powering a transceiver, and easily portable. I never thought I would find those specs!

    I bought the Genasun controller due to Julian's detailed analysis.

    I have recommended looking at Julian's youtube site now on two different local nets.

    Cheers, Julian!!
