I really like your reply. This is why I got started with QRP. The little day pack is enough for me to get away from noise. I like to find a pretty spot to set up, enjoy the view, and have lunch away from town. I am always looking for lightweight transceivers for SSB, because I especially like the mountains. I would like to extend my hiking and camping range with HF amateur radio along. The day pack has only enough room for lunch and some little extra clothing for a little cold or wet weather to get myself back to the car. I was responding to AI6KX. But there probably really is freeze-dried Beanee Weenie somewhere for sale. Sardines have a vacuum package as well as a can. I look into all these things. I would like an extra LiPo or LiIon battery pack along, as well, and, find an even more lightweight HF SSB transceiver. Now, multiday hikes with camping I only have a little SWL radio for weather and listening out under the stars. This is so great, having QRP Corner. I hope to see and hear from more QRP radio amateurs.
