I predict you will have fun with that 706! Like my Ten-Tec Delta I it is highly portable. I use a Ham-Stick and a Vice-Grip that I bought at a CB shop with a mount welded to it ($20)
Just returned from Eugene/OR and I stayed at the Hilton downtown at 66 - 6th Avenue. It was a little "pricey" at $95 a night, but Oh-What-A-Balcony! I was on the 9th floor and full access to the iron railing with GREAT operating. I also got a great breakfast the next morning for free ($7) and a beautiful room.
Thanks for replying to my thread, I guess very few of us operate portable these days.
