Just found this thread and thought I would share my "shack in a box". I made this during 2014 and love it.

I can take it anywhere, use it at home, for bike/running races, anything I need a portable ham station for.

Thank you. That's a bit more than I'm looking to do, but it gives me some ideas.

 I've been real interested in this post. I think I'm in a similar situation. Relatively new license, been waiting almost 2 years to get my first HF rig. Mama said I was good boy for Christmas, so I'm supposed to get a nice radio.(money is still a serious factor) Any comments on Icoms IC-9100?More expensive-yes, is it worth it? (Loaded question). Wish list: comparatively recent radio, good receiver, doesn't need addons, all band, all mode, reliable quality control/customer service manufacturer. This will be my "first" HF radio, but will probably be a while before it is replaced or any thing else added. So I'm willing to spend extra K if it is a good radio(just can't spend an extra 3-4k. Need to add antenna, etc also.) I just haven't seen any comments on the 9100. Thanks: let the comments begin. 73, AA4SB Steve.

It is more of a shack in a box than a HF rig. Honestly there is very little SSB on 2m and above especially starting out. I would suggest you spend same amount of a HF rig and a dual band VHF/UHF FM rig. Also for about 400 more you could get a IC7600 which is a better HF rig than 9100
