For my portable activations I use:
* End fed antenna with 10 m pole ( vertical ).
* FT897D SSB only, usually 25 W.
* LiPo batteries 4 cell 5 AH and battery alarm.
* Fishing pole 10 m, 1.3 kg, inserted only 52 cm.
* Handheld Garmin GPS60CSX with SOTA waypoints.
* Car GPS Garmin 66LMT with SOTA waypoints.
I always manage to place my mast to a pole, treestub or something like that with a pair of straps so I leave my tent pins at home.
