Re: operating when travelling

One solution is to visit a club in the area.  Our club would be happy to have someone use one of the radios but getting a member to open the shack on the right day/s might be a problem.

Ok, after arranging most of this year’s travel so that I could complete the 365/366 endorsement this year, the best laid plans have gone astray and now I’m faced with needing to make QSO’s on may 26th and 27th but will be in Boulder, CO at that time.

The possible solutions I see are:
1) find a way to set my current rig for portable operation
2) acquire/borrow a rig that will let me operate portably, said rig being small enough/light enough to travel by air with.
3) arrange with some ham to use his PSK capable rig at the destination for the 2 days I will need QSO’s

Anyone have other ideas not covered by those options?

To my eye the one that sounds appealing is option 2, as it leaves me not only with a solution to the immediate problem but also gear to operate while I am traveling.

Suggestions on gear for portable operation eagerly solicited.
