|KB9BVN POTA Hunter Station - K1, Ten Tec Paddles, Battery, and LDG Z11 Autotuner|
Yes indeed. This is my POTA Hunter station I use when I am working from home. It sits on my desk and is connected to a dipole in my attic. This K1 is serial number 1205, I bought this radio as a kit from Wayne Burdick N6KR at the Dayton Hamvention in 2002. It took me about 3 weeks to build it in my spare time. It is a 4 band unit, 15m, 20m, 30m, and 40m. With the LDG Z11 I can tune my attic dipole on all four bands. On 40m it is capable of about 7 watts, and 5 on the other three.
Since I started POTA hunting on June 22nd of this year I have used this little setup to log almost 50 different Parks on the Air activators, I just got my Gold Certificate this weekend (30 parks) and I hope to get my Diamond Certificate (50 Parks) before the end of this week.

I have already shown you what I use when I go out activating parks. The bands are not hot but I'm still making contacts and I owe a BIG part of it to the incredible ears out there that can pull me out of the weeds for those tough ones.
This has been so much fun and has really reactivated my interest to get out there and operate portable/remote or picnic table. Give it a try!
