Simple Yet Reliable Morse Code Radio – Penntek TR-35 Transceiver

I hiked to the top of Black Mountain near Wickenburg, Arizona. I brought along some borrowed gear to test on this Summits on the Air activation. This was my 3rd time using the Penntek TR-35 Transceiver and BeeTenna VHF Antenna. Both are excellent products that made this activation a success.

Morse Code Contact From A Mountaintop #qrp #hamradio #cw

Summits on on Air combines hiking mountaintops with operating ham radios. I prefer to use Morse code when communicating with other stations, but you could use voice.

I will be participating in a LIVE buildathon where a group of us will build Rex Harper’s (W1REX) CP SIGHTer kit. The kit arrived, and as I was going through the parts list I realized I had to set up a test circuit to identify what color my LEDs emit.
