I'm putting together a portable rig so I can pack it into my kayak, paddle up river and set up camp. I have a lawn-tractor battery with a solar charging setup (charge controller and panel from ebay) and an Icom IC-728 and tuner to go in dry-boxes for transport. I have a 31' fiberglass sectional twist-lock wire antenna which breaks down to less than 4' for travel. This fits on top of a tripod with an 11' extension giving me an antenna that sticks up 42' into the air from my campsite that can fit into my kayak. I put all of this together at my recent HamCon and I'm kinda excited about it. I'm wondering who else does something similar and what suggestions, tips or advice they may have for putting something like this together. Pics, anecdotes, packing ideas and suggestions, whatever. Anyone?
