K0PIR Field Day Operation

Greetings all! I will be operating during Field Day 2020 with my own callsign. The location will be in the Badlands of South Dakota, hopefully in a dispersed camping area near Wall, SD. Follow my progress on Twitter, Instagram and YouTube. 

Field Day


Portable Ham Shack

This camper has been real enjoyable and the best part about it is the radio and antenna, Hi Hi.

The antenna is a Hi-Q-5/80 mounted on the rear and the radio is the Icom 7300. I am able to operate any mode from this portable Ham shack. See my post Operating Portable With The Icom 7300 and Hi-Q Mobile Antenna.

This year will be 100% solar power, lord willing. I have a generator for backup power. If you have any questions, comments or solutions, please comment below. I prefer the comment section here or in YouTube because your comments and questions will help others as well.


I will be heading to the Black Hills. See Mount Rushmore Special Event.

I’ll also have an article and videos coming soon on a great, free logging program, Log4OM.

Thank you for subscribing to this website. You can also follow my travels on Twitter, Instagram and YouTube. 

Will you be operating during Field Day? Please comment below where you will be and if your club is participating this year. The COVID-19 pandemic deterred our club from operating this year.

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.
