Portable radio is a hoot. The above picture is a Photoshop creation. The portable dipole is a Buddipole, an antenna I designed in 2000. The homebrew Buddipole and Buddistick information is here:
The trike I use regularly for playing HF radio is a Lightfoot Cycle from Montana. The trike is pictured to the right of this text.
Since 2002, my son, Chris, W6HFP, has been running the Buddipole company, a venture that produces commercial ham radio antennas and power products and accessories for the portable op. Buddipole.com is the web address. I go with him to many of the bigger hamfests across the country. My original homebrew Buddipole design is on the Googlesite address above.
If you worked our "Buddies in the Caribbean" crew from St. Lucia, J6,Dominica, J79 or Grenada, J3, Barbados, 8P, St Martin, FS and PJ7, Montserrat, VP2M, or Saba, please QSL direct to the op's home call. I will answer any snail mail QSL card, and will also respond to any buro cards that come in from the many DX-Peditions I've been a part of. I don't use EQSL and am not a member. Same with LOTW. IF the contact is a new country for you, send me an email to see if you are in the log, and I will respond with a direct card to save you the postage from your end to mine.
For regular W3FF QSO's, if you want a card, please send me one in the mail.
