Do you take a radio station along with you whenever you or your family might go on a vacation, to the cottage, head out camping, or take an overseas trip...?
[691 votes since 2014-12-02]
  YES---I absolutely LOVE the notion & the challenges of operating portable like that.
  NO---My XYL & kids would KILL me if I dragged along my radios like that.
  YES---One can only lounge at the beach & see the sights for so long: my radio is a comforting thing to fall back on.
  NO---When I head out someplace new, my radio stays home, by my own choice. Who needs that distractioin in new environments, anyway?
  YES---It gives the perfect opportunity to utilize my so-called "secondary" radio, & to help ensure that it's still functioning.
  NO---Far too many questions from non-Hams whenever I might operate in "unknown territory" that only serves to spoil the fun.
  Who can afford to travel hither & yon these days?! Besides, my Ham radio is MY passport to anywhere that I might want to go.

    Shack Showcase VK6IA - Perth, Australia
    VK6IA - Perth, Australia My equipment comprises of an Icom IC-7700, Icom IC-7000 and Kenwood TS530S transceivers. The HF Linear amp is a Kenwood TL-922 for the VK limit of 400W PEP. My VHF Amplifier is a Mirage B2516G which delivers 200W PEP on 144Mhz SSB. I use an Icom ID800H in the car for D-Star and 2M & 70cm when mobile. Also use a Yaesu VX7R portable when out and about. I am active on 80M to 70cm all modes including SSB, CW and digital modes. Mainly I enjoy DXing looking for "new ones" and working DXpeditions. My antennas are: •20-6M 3 element SteppIR yagi with 6m passive element. •80/40M homebrew trapped dipole. •Butternut HF6V 6 band Vertical 80-10M mounted on Large Peaked metal roof hich serves as an eectib elevad radial system. •Diamond X510M 2/70 colinear for V/UHF FM on the top of the tower. My Antenna pics and other news can be viewed at my blogsite. http://www.vk6ia.com/
