I had to go to Manchester, UK to attend a B737-NG Avionics course, it's a 3 week course so I decided to bring with me my ICOM IC-703 and a hand held, while I has been here I also picked up an ICOM IC-E92D.

Operating bands and modes:
I operated on the 20 m band from the car park outside the hotel.


Radio Equipment:

ICOM IC-703 160 m - 6 m HF/VHF Multimode Transceiver
ICOM IC-E92D 2 m/70 cm VHF/UHF FM/D-STAR Transceiver
KENWOOD TH-F7E 2 m/70 cm VHF/UHF FM Transceiver
Dipole antenna for 20 m
Switch Mode PS 12 VDC - 5 A

The car parked in the car park outside Village Cheadle Hotel. The hotel can be seen in the background. The antenna is installed as an Inverted V from one of the branches of the pine tree behind the car.


The center insulator of the 20 m half wave dipole can be seen on this picture, right below the branch.


The ICOM IC-703 in the "shack" resting on the back of the backseat. The transceiver was powered from the lighter outlet of the car.
