11 to 14 kg depending upon the bands used. I always carry survival kit regardless of the weather or how close a summit is to civilisation. Water weighs a lot for what it is, but it is absolutely essential.

73, Gerald

I run on about 17-20kg… includes the kettle!

In reply to all:

About 7 Kg. But will change to a smaller SLAB and less wire less tools, and use only one tuner so probably the scale will show 5 Kg, without the thermos with coffe and cheese sandwiches.

eeeeeh - for what do you need a kettle?! :wink:

to prepare the magic potion of course! :wink:

to stay on topic: The weight here is varying as well. From 8-10kg for quick and easy activations up to 15-20kg, always depending on the tour.

In reply to DL4MFM:

14-17kg depending if PSK gear is with and summer or winter.


In reply to DL4MFM:

About 10kg here (with QRP HF station and small 2m FM). But I am still working on some optimization.


In reply to DL4MFM:

My backpack weighs 7kg including spare fleece jacket and water bottle.
I run QRP SSB only.



In reply to LA1TPA:

my QRO-Rucksack has about 10kg, where the RIG has 6kg:

the QRP-Rig has 1kg: KX1 400g (with 4xLi-Ion AA cells 700mAh) + Antenna 600g

the bottle beer is not included :wink:
