A vacation with the QCX-mini

The family took a few days of Fall Break and spent some time in the Texas Hill Country. We rented a house along the Guadalupe River and enjoyed a relaxing time of kayaking, fishing and family fun. Of course, I packed a few ham radio bags as well!

Once we settled in, I used my arborist line to string up my homebrew, multi-band EFHW antenna from the balcony to a large tree in the back yard. Then I broke out my 40m QCX-mini and checked the band. Sure enough, 40 meters was hopping and I got a chance to work several stations. 

It was a very nice trip made even nicer by the chance to test out my OCX-mini and antenna with worked flawlessly!
