I am going to build a QRP morse code transceiver. Due to money, I am only going to build one, for one band.
I plan on taking the QRP transceiver backpacking where I will wire the antenna in a tree.
I will be operating from South America, and I am starting the process of building the QRP rig. I am thinking about building for either 40 meters or 20 meters.
Given the constraints
•Small antenna (wire strung in a tree)
•Probably more in the early morning and late afternoon/evening because we will be hiking during the day
•Very portable for lightweight hiking
Which band should I go with:
Or another band
Again, I am only choosing one band for now, I may expand later, but I only have the money for one band QRP at this point in time.
