    Hello operators
    Today I'm sharing a follow-up video answering viewers questions, about the Chameleon P-LOOP 2.0. Specifically I was asked how difficult is it to carry and deploy the P-LOOP 2.0 portable, with a qrp rig, in cold weather. To answer that question, I loaded up my skipulk, taking you all along.

    I've also taken the extra step to remove any personal enthusiasm about any of the antennas that I feature or review.
    That was hard feedback but understandable.

    Well done, Julian !

    I really enjoy and appreciate your videos. That was yet very familiar sound of snow underfoot during your set-up. I remember, during long winters and winter camping: the colder the temps, the higher the pitch of the snow-squeek under my boots.

    Magloops are a wonderful addition for anyone needing an effective, quick-up antenna. The impressive part is making them into an easily packed and transported antenna that does not require trees or other supports. Yes, it's "optional" to ensure that the operator is well grounded, but I'm glad that you left that part in - I had a good chuckle.

    Excellent, thanks!

    I can't do pl259s with gloves on, you are a superhero.

    You have a couple good dogs. I hope they got some treats.

    Julian: Excellent job! Beautiful location. I wonder how this loop compares to other similar loops. I am planning on getting one. The portability and efficiency is the most important to me.
    Those dogs look real pretty too.
    Have fun!

    Hi Sergio.
    Thanks for the kindness. My boys and I are always getting in some sort of trouble together . One thing to consider with this Loop is the 2 different coupling loops and main loops. Personally I don't use the smaller 40 through 10 meter configuration, since I can have the added performance of the large main and coupling Loop, albeit at the expense of 12 and 10 meters.
    The portability of this one is the best from chameleon so far (imho).
