Firstly if its been answered in the past, apologies!
Esther (GI0AZA) and my good self (AZB) have always in the past travelled to GM, G and GW by ferry, leaving or retrieving MI6JHE from Uni and we have been able to try some activations on the way. All the usual kit goes in the jeep!
Now comes the ‘bird leaves the nest time’ and we fly in November over to Birmingham from GI land. Hire car will be used and we are for the first time taking the rucksack aboard the cabin. Ok I understand the rules on the size of bag and the rules around the radio gear and batteries, but my research so far hasn’t found an answer to whats available as an antenna support.
What do you guys and girls use by way of antenna support and if its a pole what size can be taken into the cabin with luggage? My antenna of choice is usually end fed or we can bring the linked dipole. I currently use a standard telescopic roach pole (7M) but that would be way too big for the cabin!
Any help would be appreciated, we have two weeks before we go
