The plan was to work stations on 6m FM band plus HF from the back of my vehicle (aka the Unbelievable Jeff).

I use both the manpack radios (Clansmans and the RF-10) plus the Racal VRM5080 which is a radio previously used in tanks. All of these radios have now been decommissioned and put out for reuse by licenced radio operators.

Radios used in this video:

Clansman 352
Clansman 320
Racal VRM 5080
Tesla RF-10
