My POTA Gear

HF Transceiver: Yaesu FT-891 - great rig for POTA

Power: U1 Garden Tractor Battery - $25 gets you on the air

Tuner: Dentron Jr. Monitor - handles most antenna types

Analyzer: RigExpert Stick - very useful accessory

Tips & Recommendations

Activators: Occasionally ask for parks, mobiles, and QRPs.
These weaker signals have trouble getting heard.

Hunters: Only say your call sign once each try.
The second time probably covers someone else up.
