The Ultimate Bugout Mobile Portable Ham Radio Survival Setup 9-22-2015. Post #766.


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/veij7M7tZzk.  Exceptionally well-done presentation by "videosbymike" on how to assemble the "ultimate bugout mobile portable ham radio survival setup."  Mike's portable system is lightweight, efficient, and easy to deploy for emergencies or operations "in the field."  Mike's system uses the Yaesu FT-857D HF/VHF/UHF transceiver, a LDG YT-100 antenna transmatch (i.e. "tuner"), a 14 Ahr AGM sealed lead-acid battery, an 80-watt sine wave inverter, and two, 20-watt solar panels. Mike also demonstrates some of the HF and VHF antennas he uses with this portable station.  There are many great ideas in this well-paced video.  Every radio amateur should have a backup station for emergencies or portable use.  For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars.  These news feeds are updated daily.  Thanks for joining us today!  Aloha es 73 de Russ (KH6JRM).
