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.
