Your Portable Setup?


Recommended Posts

 

I was playing out in the woods today, supporting a 12k race, and I had this monster in the truck to extend range.

 

I know some of you have some portable setups. I figured it would be fun to share them here. Especially if it's a bit unconventional.

Whatcha got?

You by any chance ever forget to drop the mast before driving off? That setup make a great tree branch trimmer.

Don't have pictures, sorry. My portable setup is FT-817ND + Emtech ZM-2 manual tuner + 20ft telescoping fishing pole + about 60ft of wire. It is more a hiking setup, than a car setup. I'm currently building 3500mAh batteries from cheap LiPO chinese cells that will fit into the FT817 battery compartment. Three of these batteries will serve me for a week, easily, without needing for recharge.

I'm not really interested in contests, SOTA and such, the setup is mostly to have a reliable comms to base camp, and sooth my thirst for an engineering challenge of having a reliable comms when resources are limited.
