Jun 27, 2012Eddie and I have been Pards for about 20 years! He's a "fun guy". Ed loves the Ham Radio hobby and he also loves life! Personally, I think he's crazier than an out-house rat, but you gotta love this guy!! He takes ham radio to a whole new level! His operations from the Appalachian Trail are legendary. Then he got bitten by the /PM bug! Pedestrian Mobile (/PM) is the ultimate combination of using ultra portable low power ham radio coupled with the love of the great outdoors. It is a challenge to make contacts using a pedestrian mobile setup, to say the least. After all, everything, and I DO MEAN EVERYTHING, is carried on your person: radio, battery, charging system, antenna, tuner, CW paddles, mic, headset, and RF counterpoise! Now you are starting to get the picture. This book is a "how-to" for anyone wanting to take up the challenge of pedestrian mobile (/PM) operations on HF using off-the-shelf gear. The things I love about this book is the wealth of information... More > AND the focus of using relatively inexpensive gear. You don't need a $300 backpack or packframe to participate in /PM. A $5.00 US Army surplus ALICE pack and a used QRP rig will suffice. A "ham stick-type" antenna and some wire for an RF counterpoise along with a surplus gel-cell battery will get you on the air in fine shape! Ed's grasp of what it takes to be successful in /PM operations is vast. He readily passes this information off to the reader with the idea of taking the work out of fabricating a /PM station. Read the book. You'll get the idea. The book is well worth the price and you'll learn all about /PM operations. Ed is the expert. In the mean time, BOLO for Ed, and me (K7SZ), as we pursue pedestrian mobile operations on the HF bands. Vy 73 Rich K7SZ< Less
Apr 22, 2012Hi Ed and Group, Ed, I purchased your other book, Amateur Radio Pedestrian Mobile Handbook (available, among other places, from lulu.com, where I bought my copy) and I have really enjoyed it! It's a great read for anyone considering operating /pm in the great outdoors and even for those who just want to know more about portable antennas, battery types, power considerations generally, rigs that are good to use portable or /pm, and best of all how Ed and others are actually doing it. Just wanted to say thanks for the book, for your contributions to the group and I can't wait to read the new one! Wish I could make it to Dayton this year, but instead I'll hope to work you /pm on one of your next adventures. I also plan to pull out my '703 and Buddipole this weekend and get the setup exercised and ready for some fun outdoor operating over the warm-weather season here in New Jersey. It's getting too nice to be working from the shack! 73 es gud DX de Tyler, KC2LST
