My Kit for SOTA/Portable Amateur Radio. Post 1822.

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: If you enjoy portable field operations, why not become active in the SOTA (Summits On The Air) program?  In this video, SOTA enthusiast James (M0JCQ) shows us his standard, "bare bones" kit for HF SOTA/Portable Operations.  This kit is simple, inexpensive, and thoroughly portable.  Even if you aren't into hiking up mountains and hills in your area, this minimalist HF set up can serve as a home emergency station should the need arise.  With the exception of James's Elecraft KX3 transceiver, most of the materials for this "go-kit" can be found at the nearest home improvement center or electrical equipment outlet. James also mentions the importance of taking your amateur radio license with you in case someone asks what you're doing on top of a mountain.
