    What modes? Have you decided on frequencies?

    Mental inquiry, yada yada yada

    SSB and FT8. My cw rx is probably not up to it ;)

    Nor is mine. Although I did survive Ducie on 5 bands cw....
    I don't do FT-8 because I'm not set up for it - yet. Someday, just not today.
    So, post up your times and ssb frequency beforehand and I'll give it a go. We should have a decent circuit over the Pacific.

    I think even the strongest wind will have a hard time blowing this "L" antenna mount with 30' portable telescopic mast over.

    I think these compact and lightweight L shaped antenna mounts are better to use than any kind of portable tripod arrangement.

    I made one of these in less than 30 minutes. Contact me for construction details. :)

    Nice work. I am mostly Shack based these days. My FT-991 has not been in the car in weeks!

    Good idea!
    Makes me want to hook up my QRP rigs again (40 m "Pebble Crusher" XTAL controlled, 80m TRX 40+ years old, both 1W out) which sit on the shelf unconnected since my last shack rearrangement.
