Welcome Forums Preparedness Go Bags Reply To: Go Bags


Not really a “Go Bag” as such, but a thrown together “take bag” for a recent holiday. In the UK, where are we really going to “Go” and why, is a question I’ve asked myself recently when thinking of excuses to buy more radio gear.

5.11 AMP 24 (32 Litre awesome but a bit pricey rucksack)
Xiegu X6100 and SOTAbeams bandspringer midi EFRW. (BUT pack the charger cable next time you fool!!)
Yaesu FT5DE, plus spare battery and charger
Handcrank charger (13 x 8 x 9 centimetres) does 3/5/6/9/12/15V – novelty or “real” emergency use only as it is tedious but works!
SOTAbeams Tactical 7000hds portable mast (7m)

For the car, Allpowers 500W/164Ah battery pack and 100W solar panel
