HF Backpack

1 min read

The backpack set up consists of yet another Alinco DX-70 with the front removed and remote in a front pouch for ease of operation, set to run at a maximum power output of 50 Watts it was very easy to operate on the move, although prolonged operation gives me back-ache as it is quite heavy.

The battery is a 12Ah gel battery and the antenna are several home made mono-band centre loaded verticals for 10, 15,17 and 20M all around 2 metres long.

A lighter and more comfortable alternative 20M only operation is using a Clansman backpack frame with an MFJ-9420 SSB transceiver which can be seen below:
