Elements of an HF ham radio go kit

green checkOver the weekend I was thinking about the elements of an HF “Go Kit”. At a high level the main components would be:

  • A radio
  • Antenna and coax
  • Power source (battery source would be ideal)
  • Headphones
  • Computer (though not really necessary very useful)
  • Tools and documentation (Antenna analyzer, Manuals, flash light, actual tools …)
  • A rugged case that can hold all these stuff safely.

I am sure I am forgetting some things that will make it more usable but this is a good start. Now I just need to researching and buying stuff to test it out. Fortunately, there are numerous guides on the Internet concerning what others have done with Go Kits.
