So how long does it take you all to set up?
I have two main systems that I use: the Get-On-The-Air-Quick kit and the Kick-Back-and-Relax kit. The former is when it is late in the day or the weather is threatening or I have other plans for the day and want to get on and off the summit quickly.
Then the other setup is for better performance and comfort when I want to hang out and enjoy as many contacts as I can make. I was wondering how long this more elaborate setup would take me given no more then the usual amount of Fudd’s Third Law of Entropy (The perversity of inanimate objects tends to a maximum)
So here is (hopefully) an entertaining little video I shot yesterday timing my setup on Mount Emma (W6/CT-029). It took me 31 minutes and 8 seconds, but the video is only a minute and a half or so:
