- Pat Ring+1Just got out of Mother's Day furniture shopping (Whew!!). Let us know, Marcus. I will plug in the mic. haha.May 11, 2014
- I worked DK2RZ towards the end of last year IIRC. He was using his antenna on his automobile. I remember looking up his call sign on QRZ.comMay 11, 2014
- So, what is in my SiaS, apart from my transceiver, microphone and battery? An approx. 3m long whip antenna; 10m teflon wire for an "emergency antenna"; 10m long counterpoise wire with stake at end; small diameter counterpoise wires cut for 10m, 20m, 40m frequencies per post on a webpage relating to HFPack; transformer and cables for 12V DC and 120V AC including battery terminal crocodile clamps; tiny tube of sunscreen; tiny tube of hand cream; "emergency" whistle; 2m and 70cm HT including half-wave antenna (including recharge cables for 12V); a Swiss Army knife (would hate to miss the screw driver and nail file otherwise!); tiny paper log book and tiny pencils.
Extended pack includes additional battery (A123-System 12V 4.6 Ah), 30W solar panel and charge controller; don't have them with me today.May 11, 2014
- And what am I really missing in the SiaS? A sun protection hat and a map. Can you think of something else?May 11, 2014
- Will apply sunscreen now and head out. Have researched area on Google Maps. Will stomp around the perimeter of a Golf Course - wonder what they will think :))
