QRP in the Park

It's 60 degrees and sunny today. After a "Minnesota Nice" winter and playing with Boat Anchors in the Basement it is turning into time to take my KX3 to a local park.

Last night I gave a "QRP in the Park" talk at the meeting of the Rochester Amateur Radio Club. I covered many possible objectives  of portable operating, how these might affect equipment/operating plans and then looked at some of today's options and my specific equipment and antenna choices.
