    here is what I use. I'm never above a tree line. 55 clams for the entire setup including coax. for 270 I think I would buy a Mountain Topper transceiver instead.

    Thats not really a joke in matter.
    I have met Extra class Hams that can't solder or put a PL259 plug on and end of coax. :eek:

    I think it would have been a nice thing to have a hands on test module. Could be something like make a simple dipole for certain band 20/40 meters ... Have some basic items and wire. Test the knowledge and skills and in the end the amatuer has first antenna for HF.

    Hello!

    Thanks for your personal review... Will look into it as well. Starting to enjoy Outdoor QRP operation and looking for something simple.

    Agree 100%

    Tried 3 different times to get a shipping quote to Canada. Told 3 times they'd get back to me. Never heard more. Ended up building my own for about $25 bucks. Couldn't be happier!

    I have used one of these with pretty good success! Cost = $49.00 and it is easily packed. There were directions on building one, but the Coleman clothes winder cost about $15.00, so two would be $30.00. Add wire and rope and you would pay for the ready made version. All I bring is a couple of jackite poles (if there are no trees around), rope, and a QRP radio and am good to go.
