#28: My QRP “go kit” backpack with IC-703+ ham radio

This video shows my portable ham radio station “go kit”. It is contained in a backpack from PowerPort (http://www.powerportstore.com/). My lovely wife had the pack embroidered with my callsign before she gave it to me. She also bought me the ZM-2 tuner kit, as well as the AstroFlight Whattmeter (thanks to Jerry N2GJ for the suggestion!). It’s wonderful having a supportive spouse! The antennas are the Par Electronics tri-band end-fed antenna, and the Super Antennas MP-1 multiband vertical antenna. The tuner is a z-match style tuner from Emtech. I use 7aH gel-cell batteries, and charge them with a Battery Tender float charger from Deltran.
