Don’t let the lack of a tower or an expensive transceiver stop you from enjoying amateur radio.  Even a simple rig and a basic antenna can do wonders for your station if they’r e installed carefully. In Tom Fuzzard’s essay, he describes the very simple station  he has assembled:  a Kenwood 820 HF transceiver, basic power supply, a power/swr meter, a telegraph key, and a Butternut 6V vertical connected to about 80 radials.  His 2 meter mobile activity is conducted through a Radio Shack HTX-252 transceiver connected to a 5/8 wavelength mag mount antenna.  With this arrangement, Tom says he works ” a number of HF bands without expending a lot of money or disrupting the natural beauty around our cabin.”  Keep it simple and have a lot of fun for very little money.  Aloha de Russ (KH6JRM).
