    With the recent surge in interest in Parks on the Air, I wanted to make a video covering the Radar. Radar or Rapid Deployment Amateur Radio is adding movement to your activations. Each mode of movement has a prescribed distance you must travel between setting up your station. In this video I am doing three parks moving 6.5km or more between setups. It was a ton of fun and I am ready to get back out there.

    Great Job Shane. I'm busy with POTA myself these days. You've inspired me to plan a RDAR trip soon.

    Who comes up with these arbitrary rules and the silly acronyms? My new acronym is JASVAN.

    A very nice video. I hadn't heard of this program (RADAR) until recently. I had been doing this and not even known it. You are correct about being prepared for different types of deployment. Great Job. Thanks for the information. I worked that maritime mobile station just last weekend too :)

    Yea this was something new I found as well. If you remember which activations you had you can go back and fill out the Radar application. I got a bit excited over the maritime mobile station lol

    You are hereby formally charged with the offense of misappropriation of a 61 year old acronym coined by the United States Navy.

    The pretentiousness of this is similar to OH8STN's recent AAR.
