I’ve already introduced you to my backpack for field operations and SOTA, but I have a second lighter one if the trip is a bit long or if I’m not sure to use the radio.
This one weighs only 800 grams (instead of 6.5kg)!
It consists of the following items:
a D104-M6B amplified Astatic microphone a QRPver-1 v.3 (4w) transceiver in 20m version (single band) a rechargeable battery pack EFHW antenna for 20m a coax a throw-bag and a rope I also have a small Morse iambic key.
When I operate in the field or on a summit, I like to have all the stuff I need. To do, I have a complete backpack to operate on HF and 2m bands in SSB, FM, digimode and even CW. For this last mode, I require technical help… I will be more clear later on. ;-)
So, what is the content of my backpack ? It weighs about 6.5 kg.
