What is your favorite modification to the equipment you use for SOTA? (Starting from “as purchased” or “as designed” if you built it.)
For myself, I got frustrated one day because one my digital recorder has non-standard AA battery contacts. One must use really good light to find the tiny embossed “+” in order to properly orient the cells.
I took some red nail polish, gathered pretty much every battery-powered trinket in the house, and put a red blob near the positive end of the battery holder. I am pleased each time I put a battery into any of the devices.
