I put some photos of my 10-band QRP station in the contest soapbox for the
January VHF SS. It's really not too bad to move (I hooked up all the
wires of the station itself before I left home) but the way I set up the
antennas makes it less than desireable as a Rover station. It generally
takes me an hour or so to set up and tear down the antennas.
