Hi,
Thought I'd sign up here as I'm going to be doing some portable operation from time to time. Did a bit in the past sat in the car with a simple 1/4 wave 20m vertical and elevated radial almost at the tide line down at the beach - worked a treat. Now sorting out some gear that will fit in a backpack - ft-857, tuner, aerials(to be decided),coax etc. All I need now is something to protect the front panel of the 857 then I'm good to go.

Maybe hear some of you on the bands.

Welcome to ARPOC Mark.

Take a look at my FT-857 man pack for some inspiration...
