I see portable radios in the Swap section advertised with 12" diameter coiled antenna kits, extended handles, Bioennio batteries, vertical antenna tripods, sometimes amplifiers, and Halliburton suitcases. I see photos of operations that look like full Field Day setups posted by portable POTA/SOTA operators. Go kits that make home stations seem haphazard and temporary in comparison. It's hard to find a Xiegu or Elecraft in the Swap section that hasn't been "tricked out" with all sorts of add-ons. My question: How is this really "portable" operation? To me, portable means you and a radio that's easy to carry. No external stuff, no suitcases, no ears on the radio case, no excess baggage. Minimalist operation. Grab and go. Wire antenna on an old solder spool or BNC antenna, internal battery, maybe not even an external mic on an Elecraft. I use the same philosophy for photography - micro four thirds camera with a zoom lens and no camera case. For me, I have QRP radios not for the QRP but for the portability. Anyone else agree with this?
