Here is my list:

Elecraft KX3 (160-6M) with a 100 watt amp and 45 amp PS. My radio will do digital modes well with a direct hookup from a laptop or can be used in any other mode. I can bring the complete station with laptop if needed.

80-6M portable long wire that hooks to coax on the end and can be tossed in a tree or strung off a pole.

25 4ft army tent poles

1.4KW Generator, its small, but should run a couple 100W stations.

Archer CB Radio HT....not really.....Its a Uniden....just kidding.
