Sometimes when one needs to get out of the shack and perhaps take a break from HF operating or DXing, nice to have portable gear. My Portable Operating gear currently consists of:
- Yaesu FT2D Digital Fusion/Ananlog 2m/440 w/Comet SMA 24
- TYT MD-2017 DMR 2m/440
- Motorola MTS2000 Flashport Model III (33cm aka 900Mhz)
They both put out 5W. Between these two radios I got most of the active VHF/UHF covered.
900 Mhz (33cm)

If you find something incorrect and/or have an update, I would really appreciate if you could let me know by contacting me. I like to keep things as up-to-date as possible. Thank you! - Lucas / W6AER
