My second hobby is mountains trip and in the occasions, I always carry my radios and accessories with me. In my knapsack, usually, I put my Yaesu FT817 and/or Mizuho MX-6S, MX-14S, MX-21S, Tokyo Hi-Power HT-750. Frequently, during the walk or at the alpine hut arrival, I work many stations between HF bands and 70 cm. It is not first time, during sporadic-E cycle on 6 m, that I work 1000/1500 Km far-off stations with 1 Watt only and a whip antenna and several thousand km in HF. In V/UHF SSB mode I am active too and it is not a difficult undertaking to work stations 300/400 Km away. For field-day activity, I have built some suitable antennas: dipoles and whip antennas for HF, 1 meter telescopic loaded-antenna for 50 MHz, a dual band (28+50 MHz) inverted "V" telescopic dipole, various whip and gadgets for 144/432 MHz. Under, you can see some phases of the operations. If you are a FT817 or Mizuho MX series owner, send me an e-mail for impressions or advices exchange.
