Recorded LIVE - Antenna Q&A - DX Commander - QRP Conference #MNHR

This is the Q&A Section of my live talk at the G QRP Club Conference held over weekend of 5th and 6th September 2020. The club had a whole weekend of live talks attended by hundreds of people. This was the agenda for the weekend: Amazing people, well organised and professional. The GQRP Club costs only £6 per year and there are international representatives so you can pay in your local currency. Quite incredible. Information on joining is here: Mention my name – and maybe I’ll get a free pass! Callum – M0MCX.
