Station in a Suitcase

On Sunday, Marty W7MSO brought his suitcase station. It includes a Windows laptop, IC-7000 all-mode all-band transceiver, AT-7000 automatic tuner (under the deck), TNC for packet radio, and various power hookups. Here he is operating it.
Marty also demoed the Automatic Position Reporting System (APRS) (not pictured here), which shows live amateur radio information plotted on a map… positions, speeds, altitudes, temperatures, schedules, and other information. One fun example of this was a ham flying an airplane, northbound near Corvallis. Another example was that I saw Mike N7QXH was up hiking near Pechuck lookout, and it reported his exact position and altitude. It looked like he was probably at the summit. Since I know I can usually talk to him on the KD7DNM repeater on Goat Mountain I called and talked to him until my handheld radio’s battery gave out.

I haven’t taken my camera out in months; so the other day I dug out my battery charger and went for a walk with a tripod and camera. This isn’t exactly the result I was after from this shot, but I think getting what I want could take a long time and I have alot of other work to get done.
It’s tricky to get the contrast right, because my laptop screen and my monitor are giving me quite different looks (and neither of them are pro screens, so it’s tricky to decide which to go with).
I’m really not a fan of the Mantuik algorithm, this is processed (not very well on my part) with the fattal algorithm.

32GB DigiMate III card reader. This is one of the most usefull items ive bought. Its a 2.5inch laptop HDD holder that has all the card slots in built. It has a rechargable battery that runs the HDD allowing me to copy my CF cards onto the HDD so i can reuse them. Excellant for rallies when your taking 1000′s of photos a day.
