Title: Best Prepper Mobile Setup
Post by: Drls on July 12, 2019, 06:18:14 am
First off... amazing resource.  I'm very excited to have found this community!

After reading these posts, I am interested by two systems most for their portability, low power consumption, and range.

1.  https://www.lnrprecision.com/mountain-toppers/

2.  http://qrp-labs.com/qsx.html  (Comming soon?)

Being able to communicate hundreds of miles on a few AA batteries is nothing short of magical.
I would love to see something like this in action, or learn about other similar systems that may fit the bill.  If anyone has something like this on Long Island and is a member here please message me and I would be so happy to see a working set up.

I would be happy to build as a kit as well, as I'm very hands on.
Looking forward to your thoughts
Thanks again!

Hello,

The MTR won't be released as a kit again, though Steve Weber will most likely release new kits in the future, in very small numbers... Those kits are hard to put together... I'd suggest a QCX to start with...

Thank you so much Gil!
If starting with a qcx... which band would you recommend?
If i brought this camping i would only have the one band... so would want to make the most of it.

Hello, one band only, I would say 40m, hands down.
I would be tempted to say 20m for day time and 80m for night time. It depends on what you want to do...
