I have 3 heavy duty 12 volt batteries for my ham radio gear and an inverter but never got around to setting up a solar charger.

I don't have a shack, but I do have a few Ht's and a TYT 9800 in my truck.
Maybe when I retire I will have time for a shack and an HF setup

Welcome to a fellow ham. Coyotebc. That TYT 9800 looks interesting and much cheaper than the Yaesu. How does it perform for you? Iíve run a very simple inverted V wire antenna in my back yard for many years and made some very interesting contacts including antarctica. Of course. I canít compete in contests with guys using tri-banders on 100í towers but I still have a lot of fun. I hope you can put together a shack.

Yes but it sucks, as does the Abbotsford one

It works okay, but I only really use the 2m and 70cm bands
I may be getting rid of the current antenna and getting a dual band one.
I 4x4 and the current antenna needs to be folded down when offloading.

I picked up a Ruger PCC takedown. Kind of a neat little rig. It uses Glock mags and breaks down and assembles really quick. I shot a friend's on Monday a got a decent deal on one today. It's surprisingly fun to shoot and far more accurate than I would have expected.

This is probably going to be my truck gun.

When I am camping I usually have either a Rossi Ranch Hand (44 remmag) with a full stock.
12" barrel swings nice
Or a short barrelled (12 inch) pump shotgun
Easy to stow, easy to carry

I like mine a lot but just be heads up on extractor issues MB. Mine was flawless for 800 rounds then turned into a stovepipe machine. An upgraded extractor and it was gtg again...but seems to be a common issue.

Thanks for the heads up RN. I have heard they had some extractor issues. I will probably try to find an upgraded aftermarket one and install it right off. Which extractor did you go with?
