Walkabout refers to a rite of passage where male Australian Aborigines would undergo a journey during adolescence and live in the wilderness for a period as long as six months. In this practice they would trace the paths, or "songlines", that their people's ceremonial ancestors took, and imitate, in a fashion, their heroic deeds.
Yes a Walkabout sounds very interesting and if they were amateur radio operators they would take this rig with them! No need to listen to contesters and high speed cw ops on the other bands. Just relax and have a few casual QSOs with your Walkabout. I hope you enjoy my Walkabout!
Welcome to my 30M Walkabout Project. I'm trying to build a 30M only transceiver for use outside on trails and for portable operations.
