Just bought a Yaesu FT-891, planning to use it for some portable operating on occasion. I've never really operated HF portable so I'd like some tips and tricks from the folks who make it look easy. I do NOT plan to operate while moving. My intentions are to operate out of the trunk of my car, or on my truck tailgate. My antenna will consist of a 5" magnetic mount, and either a 20M or 40M hamstick, depending on band. I like this idea for a couple of reasons. It's easy, it's extremely portable, I can operate from inside a hotel room (run the coax inside the door), I won't have much need for a tuner (as the hamsticks are monoband). I plan to file a small reference notch in the whip of each hamstick for ease of setting it's tuning when setting up my station. I also will have at my disposal an end fed half wave that covers 10-40M. This will be used for more "I'm going to be sitting here awhile", or away from my car kind of operation. I understand the nuances with EFHW's, and will be taking precaution to mitigate common mode. I'll also have a length of paracord and a tennis ball for getting the antenna over tree limbs, trees, supporting it, etc. As far as powering the transceiver - I have made a custom power cord that's about 30' long that will plug into my transceiver. On the other end are alligator clips to connect directly to battery terminals. It's fused, of course. I also have a small 20A power supply for use when 120VAC is available, as well as a 50' extension cord. All of this fits nicely in a small duffle bag (except for the hamsticks, ha) What am I forgetting? What should I consider? Tips? Tricks? Advice? Thanks!
