I really fail to see the problem...

portable or permanent.. almost like black and white.. or night...and day...

por·ta·ble (pôr'tə-bəl, pōr'-) adj.

1. capable of being transported or conveyed: a portable stage.
2. easily carried or conveyed by hand: a portable typewriter.

per·ma·nent (pur-muh-nuhnt) –adj
1. existing perpetually; everlasting, esp. without significant change.
2. intended to exist or function for a long, indefinite period without 
regard to unforeseeable conditions: a permanent employee
3. long-lasting or nonfading:

but I also think of of the portable category as meaning carried by 
hand...not fixed/mounted on a vehicle....

like the guys that carry their little 817 or 706 up the mountain with a 
gel cell battery and stumpy antennas..
