QuartzFest 2020

I am on my way to QuartzFest. If you haven’t heard about it, QuartzFest is a week-long ham radio, camping, learning and living event near Quartzsite, AZ. It starts on 1-19-2020. This will be a fun and exciting event for me. I haven’t been camping or operating portable since Field Day. I’ll be operating out of my camper with the ICOM 7300 and a couple of different antennas. An inverted L mounted on a 30ft. flag pole and a TarHeel 200A mounted on the rear of my H3.

Mobile

Icom 7000, TarHeel 200A, various Hustler antennas and a SignaLink USB. HP Stream for digital modes.

K0PIR at QuartzFest

You can follow me on my YouTube channel, “Ham Radio With K0PIR” on Twitter and/or my Instagram account. If you can’t meet up with me in the desert, I’ll be on the air. I’ll be operating on all modes throughout the week long event on 20m, 40m and 80m.

I look forward to making videos of the event and making a lot of contacts from the desert in Arizona.

Coming to YouTube. My Partner in Crime Mr. B.

Best 73 and good DX in 2020,

Rich, K0PIR

I'm an Amateur Radio enthusiast. I love the hobby and experimenting with radios, antennas and software. On my YouTube channel I upload videos on the Icom 7300 and Icom 7610 along with Ham radio software programs. I hope to inspire people to try new things in Amateur Radio.
