    Minimalist to the extreme

    SOTA more, recover faster and cover way more summits by carrying what you need and not much fluff. Smaller pack, lose the mast if you can, MTR or KX2/3, etc. Minimal stuff, keep the weight down. I have no inclination to slog a laptop and Pi to a summit to do FT8 and the like. Not my bag, baby.

    A buddy carried an FT891, RPi, 4" monitor, Kenwood VHF 50w rig, batteries for both, Superantenna, cables, HT, and keyboard to a summit. He replaced the 891/Kenwood with an FT857 but still way to heavy for these old legs. He loves his digital modes. But. if he wants to do that more power to him! :)

    He is a better man than I. With all that gear, I would lose my enthusiasm pretty fast.
