Most ham activity over 53 years was working DX, contesting and RACES (Communications Officer for Hanover Twp. and Garfield, New Jersey).
Recently, my attention has turned back to portable, mobile and light contesting operation. I often operate at home from the outdoor deck with my ICOM 706 out of a suitcase.
I also use an ICOM 706 in a Jeep Liberty. At home I use a Yaesu FT 1000D and a Ten Tec Titan amplifier. Primary antennas include an multiband inverted Vee,30 meter dipole and a Force 12- C3 beam. I am active on most all bands VHF to 160 meters.
