Believe me, I'm not a big fan of walks, particularly in fall, winter, spring and parts of the summer. But then again, this radio occasionally made this so rewarding that I walked for 2 hours instead of the intended 30 minutes because I was actually just enjoying my hobby, a few 100m away from the village outskirts without any QRM even, always much better reception than in my noisy home and even better than all of the (more or less) local KiwiSDRs.
In times when young people walk around on the street wearing giant headphones, I have no problem with looking like I'm remote controlled. This proved to be funny even: I live in a tourist town at the coast and I usually pass a pretty big public parking area on my way to my favorite lap around the neighborhood. This parking lot is closed to RVs and camping trailers from 8pm to 8am anyway, and during the lockdown periods when all the camping grounds were closed this parking lot was a popular destination for RV owners, who often came in little convoys after sunset to set up camp there.
In winter, I often just circle this parking lot a few times (because I'm never far away from home then) and obviously I was looking so "official" with my whip and the earphones that I had several occasions of RVs arriving, seeing me then making a turn and departing again, some already being there packing up their things and leaving, or a trio of them coming back 2 times in the hope I'm gone just when I passed the main entrance again.
