Story:
I had to go to Wichita to some flight testing in connection with my work. In my spare time I visited the Radio Shack in Derby and loaded up my suitcase with a LDG AT-100Pro Antenna Tuner. During the weekends I drove up to see Dodge City, and visited Lake Cheney State Park and El Dorado State Park to get on the air with my IC-703.

Operating bands and modes:
When spare time allowed I worked some QSO's on the 20 m band
from Lake Cheney State Park and El Dorado State Park.

Radio Equipment:

ICOM IC-703 160 m - 6 m HF/VHF Multimode Transceiver
Half-wave dipole for the 20 m band
