RE: Hopefully....

I hope to spend more time outside this season. I tend to hangout indoors more than I should.

I'm gathering components for a portable HAM Radio setup to combine hobby with being outdoors.

Some challenges are weight, power, vs portability. Considerations include battery weight & power, radio weight & power, antenna portability and ease of setup/breakdown vs effectiveness, and being able to carry it all in or strapped to a backpack. Unpredictable weather in the mountains is a factor too so a lightweight shelter wouldn't be a bad idea. Add water, food, and don't forget the toilet paper, just in case. ;-)
