The "shack"... This is my main theatre of operation, and is located at JO59 in the south-eastern part of Norway, 100 km's south-west of Oslo. On the walls I have world maps, DXCC listings etc. Below my desk you can see my batterypool, always charged up and ready for a power outage. I can operate everything for maybe as long as up to a week, if I conserve power. The desktop wallpaper on my computer is XPlanet, showing me a 'live' image of earth with moving greyline and real satellite imagery, both daytime and night-time.
My morse telegraphy sending devices. From left to right: A WW2 lap key, an original post war Junker Key, a key my morse exam instructor gave me, an Elektrisk Bureau (EB) key on a brass plate, another EB key, an original "swedish key" with the the cover to the right, my bencher paddle, and last, my Palm Radio FT817 paddle. Not showing here is my favourite key, the Kent paddle.
My portable setup. The ft817 "Go Bag" contains a Mascot switching powersupply for charging the 7Ah Lead Gel battery, a MFJ16010 random wire tuner, quite a bit of "random wire" and radials, several very small dipoles for 20m 17m 15m 12m and 10m, a tinytrack APRS tracker, a ft817(!) with mic, a Palm Radio Mini Paddle, a set of earphones, some bits and pieces of coax cable, connectors, clips etc. This is the complete setup that I use when operating portable QRP. The case has a charger socket and antenna socket on top with the handle, and usually sits under my desk tricklecharging from my main powersupply and battery pool. In case of any event, I can just grab my case and run.
To the right you can see my Elecraft KX1 portable setup, which I use when hiking in the norwegian mountains. It weighs about 2 kilos complete with solar charger and 5 metres telescopic mast. Also see my Portable web page. The whole setup, less the telescopic mast and solar system, fits in a small lunchbox and weighing approx 0,7 kilos. So when away on business trips and short hikes to areas with trees or other structures, that is all I need.
