I would like to start a thread on light weight
backpacking.

I have the following questions for those who backpack.

What are you carrying for gear?

Have you done or considered optimizing your station for
minimum weight?

Does anyone out there carry a rig without a cabinet in
bubblepack for instance?

How about weight vs batteries?

Solar?

Feed line?

Tuner vs no tuner?

Band?

Antenna?

And of course, what kind of back packing do you do with
your station. Day packing, overnighters, long term?

Thanks and 72,,,Jerry...WA6OWR...K
