Portable Ham Radio | Camping Gear & Shelter

Hello Operators.
During August 2020, I spent some time above the Arctic Circle in Finnish Lapland, practicing my portable ham radio field craft, testing my camping gear, and testing my tipi tent shelter and wood stove, and off grid camping with my dog Snapper for the very first time. This trip had two goals. The first was to showcase the camping gear, lavvu shelter and titanium wood stove used for off grid camping. The second was to test a new portable ham radio station which we will publish in a follow up video. The was truly a crash course in ham radio survival.
