QRP very QRP

A theme seems to be setting in, where I go out portable and have a hard time contacting or talking to anyone. I know its QRP but I'm sure it used to be a lot easier than this.

The video below is of me and my son out in the woods having some father / son time. (much needed too !) we have fun and I try for what seemed hours to talk to anyone. I even break out the key and dabble in some CW.

I think I need to investigate the antennas I'm using when out and about, and see if i do have a problem.

Anyway here is the video - also you will see my editing skills sharpening and the addition of a new camera that I will be using when out and about form here on.
