I own an old FT-857 Multimode all band 100 Watt radio that is in
full working order so I thought I would mount it semi-permanent as a mobile unit. I decided on a Screw-Driver-Antenna
and chose the Alpine Screw Driver Antenna as it looked to fit my need and was in a price range I could almost afford.

Antenna and installed it on the truce. The Alpine Antenna was warn out from themultiple years in the weatherratteling
on the back of the truck.
This is my Emergency Communications deployment Go-Box project. I wanted a single box that
had everything equipment wise that I night need for an initial Emergency Communications Deployment.

I also have been working on a QRP
Go-Box, or more of a QRP Go-Bag.
The Idea is to make this very protable and light weight
all mode HF/VHF/UHF station and to be self contained.

This purpose of this project was to repackaged an early model HF-Packer Amplifier used
with the FT-817 radio. The original packaging was very simple and not up to what I wanted in a chassis
and I did not like the sharp edges of the external heat sink. This is how I solved that problem.
I picked up an old Heathkit SB-200 Linear Amplifier. This is what I did to restore it to ‘Better
Than’ new. [Update 6/11/14]
