I have three antennas packed up and ready to go, a 31' vertical with a 4:1 Balun and two 31' radials, a 65' long wire with a 9:1 Balun, and a 17' collapsible whip, tripod mount and three 33' radials. Those should cover all of my needs for the weekend. I've used them all before on various outings and they all work very well, and have lots of great DX to their credit. No need to change what works at this late date.
Two portable masts will be going with me, my MFJ 33' collapsible mast, and a 22' painter pole, along with a bag of rope and another one of bungy cords to make sure they stay up.
My shack, at the moment, has piles of gear scattered all over the floor, all waiting to be either stacked ready to go or to be put away, awaiting another suitable adventure.
There are four of us going to a cottage on Burridge Lake, near Westport, Ontario, for the event. Hopefully the road will have been plowed before we attempt the journey. I believe we will be using the VE3UCC callsign that belongs to the Upper Canada QRP Club, so give a listen for us.
