Ultra-Portable Amateur Digital

STN:
Hello guys.
I'm often asked about ultra-portable amateur digital comms. So I thought right now would be an excellent time to kick off an ultra portable digital comms series. In this article we discuss three different variants for Ultra portable amateur digital communications. We go through the benefits and weaknesses of each system as well as briefly covering system capabilities.

Quite interesting, except this operator is not and will not be into things Windows and/or Android.

I already own a Yaesu FT-817ND, and the day I see it configured with a MacBook Air, an iPad, or an iPhone, I will read closely.

Resistance is futile.  You will be assimilated.  :o

Seriously, I would love to get into ultra-light digital modes.  But I need a radio that will do that.  My MFJ-9420 20meter SSB rig can probably do digital with a Wolphilink, but I doubt it's frequency stability is good enough to be useful.  I keep dithering between an FT-817 and a KX2.

BTW, I have a Dell Venue tablet that's a full Win-8 machine.  The touchscreen with Windows sucks so bad I use a Bluetooth mouse with it, but it would be a great digital modes device (I think). 

STN:
The MFJ can't be any worse than the YouKits TJ2B which works fine. I also tried with a windows machine, but ultimately decided on Linux for Netbooks, and Android for tablets & smartphones.
The Bluetooth keyboard and mouse are cold ideas!

STN:
I love when people reply without reading the articles or watching the videos.
The very first example is LINUX BASED!!! :D
I updated the image to show.
I totally agree with you Windows has no place in emergency communications. Android is an excellent lightweight, low current draw solution, when rooted with bloatware removed. Apple? Well everyone has an opinion :D
Thanks for the feedback
