Ultra lightweight set up for going portable.

Post by Paul_Logan »

Any suggestions? what would be an ultra lightweight set up for doing a bit of outdoor signal trawling: You know, set up BOG, record and get home to peruse recorded files.

Ideas on rx, laptop (or other device) would be interesting.

I wish you luck with this Paul. I hope you get some good results and some good advice from people. I would love to do more of this kind of thing here but 1. lack of time. 2 No leisure battery at the moment.

I assume you are taking a laptop and Perseus/Jaguar?

Laptop batteries do not last long, especially when running radio software at full whack so I used to record only at the top of the hour for a minute or two either side. My laptops no longer have functioning batteries.

Let us know how you get on.

I was thinking of maybe the odd afternoon John. Anything to get away from the local QRN. Bring the ELAD power it off a laptop. If anyone has any better suggestions though...

Sounds perfect Paul. Can't wait to see the results. 16:00 to 19:00 seems to be the peak here. Some Japanese on the band here this afternoon - peaking at 18:00. 612 1278 & 1413.
