Hello and welcome to the forum from another relative newbie.
I don't know it all and when I think I do, I tend to find karma is just around the corner...

Hi Derek, you have joined a great forum. I always thought amateur radio equipment was large and bulky but I guess, like all technologies, it has become miniaturised, am I right?

I can get away with a dual band handheld radio for what i do.the height of the ground makes up for a lot.but yes a lot of amateur radio kit is very lightweight and portable now.
