The Hike In
With my portable HF gear consisting of my 10-60 meter vertical antenna and accessories packed in my over the shoulder cylindrical case, and my Yaesu FT-897D and accessories loaded in my other over the shoulder bag, I am looking for a place to set up my portable station, and this ridge looks like as good as spot as any.
I have left my truck parked about 1/2 kilometer away and about 200 meters below my location in this photo.
The following 5 photos show my portable station in various stages of setting up and in operation.
