Mark - I have been using the setup for a few activations. This is lovely composition of the gear and you will love it. My setup has been: - LNR MTR5b - pico paddle - all-weather notepad + pencil - 3-cell 11.1V LiPo 450 mAh + voltage alarm (needed to preserve the battery, I lost 2 already because of forgetting to disconnect (at home though)) - all those above on a small A5 size cutting board adapted to it, so I can have everything on my lap (I can send you a photo, if you wish) - ear-plug headphones + volume control Koss VC-20 Antennas: - LNR trail friendly 40-20-10, also I have a spare one with the wire for 10MHz (since I have 2x 40-20-10 already, it is cheaper for me than buy a 40-30-20) - circa 5m BNC-BNC RG50 (I think this can be even RG174) - 1.7 mm throwing line + 8oz throwing weight - a few threads of thin rope (~2mm diameter) to allow diversities of setup on the peak - I also have Elecraft T1, but I used it only because I didn't have an SWR meter. Now I have QRPguys.com one, so I am considering to carry just that one. Or a Diamond SX20 SWR (equivalent not original one) because I love watching the needle.. This works fantastic, and you WILL love it. I have used this setup when business-travelling. Hints: - do not worry about the LiPo being initially ~12.4V - this discussion took a while on Reflector forum, and I also tested numerous times - with the antenna 100% matching, really nothing to worry about, - do not buy the battery for the clock in MTR5b, it lasts max 3 weeks, it is awkward to mount, and moreover, if it dies, it a bit messes up with the rig), just set up the clock when you are on top - buy extra volume control, as the rig has no control of volume, and it is a bit loud - I use ear-plugs headphones, so that is the only good way to control the volume; if you prefer normal on-ear headphones, you can control the volume by putting the earmuffs a bit further on the earlobes. - you may not fully like the light from the display -it is not fully fitting the hole and some side light is leaking in. I opened the rig, and added some electric tape to seal the sides, now the display is beautifully glaring at me.. Just buy the setup, and enjoy it!
