I set up in a parking spot that was 40 feet from the waters edge. Operation was from the truck as it was a 95 degree day and there was not much room to set up a table. I was able to operate for 2 hours and 14 minutes and made 134 contacts. 40 meters was my main band but I did make 20 contacts on 20 meters. I could have operated longer but I had a long drive home and this was more of a scouting mission than a long activation.
Power source: truck
32 foot fiberglass telescoping mast on trailer hitch mount
wire was spiral wound on mast
Samsung Android tablet
Pigtail interface from Pignology
Heil BM-10 headset
Homemade PTT switch
Hard to see in the picture above but the tablet is hanging on the steering wheel. The keyboard is below it on a steering wheel tray table. IC-7100 control head is on a cupholder mount.
PTT switch worked great. Switch is very sensitive so no finger fatigue.
