Tilt-N-Raise and Iowa QSO Party
The use of the Tilt-N-Raise antenna mount in the Iowa QSO Party event is a great idea. You can use the Tilt-N-Raise to get your antenna up in short order and then you can concentrate on getting the rest of your gear operational. Think of the extra Iowa counties you and your group (if you are in one) can have in the logs. The antenna is a major part of an amateur radio station operating in Iowa QSO Party and the last thing you need to worry about is whether the antenna will stay upright during the Iowa QSO Party. If you have yet to buy a Tilt-N-Raise then just use our link to order a Tilt-N-Raise for yourself, then you can rest easy while working the Iowa QSO Party or any other radio event.
