Ham Radio in the campsite

I camped at Opal Mountain last weekend and set up my Ham radio. I was KK6IYM/AG portable. The radio I use is a Yaesu FT 897 D with a LDG tuner. I run off Powersonics batteries. My antennas were both a vertical whip with a coil and radials and a 10 meter dipole. My contacts were with Arkansas and Kansas on the short skip and Florida and Coast Guard on the long skip. I was on both 10 meters with the dipole and 20 meters with the vertical.
