Vertical Antenna for Parks on the Air

In this video I use my new vertical antenna setup to activate Lost Dutchman State Park in Arizona for Parks on the Air. I use an MFJ-1979 Telescopic Whip and a tripod my friend Tony K7AJF made for me. I’ve never owned a vertical antenna. This is my first time setting one up. I was a little nervous I would do something wrong but it was super simple and worked like a champ!
