No HF rig yet but i went to the local Ham club meeting (SCARC) and was someone there has some older rigs that they may be willing to loan out.
Almost finished installing the Yaesu FTM350 in the TLC, I'll post up some pictures tomorrow.

I will definitely take you up on your offer if I cant find one to use until some $$ can be saved up to buy something. The idea of having some sort of portable HF RIG is very exciting, but the cost of another expensive hobby is already taking its toll.

HF rigs don't have to be really expensive, lots of nice used one generation old radios. Look for a DX-70T(H), FT-840, IC-718, etc, should fall around $250~$500. They lack the sophisticated DSP of the current radios, but don't give up much at all otherwise and have pretty darn good filters to boot. Happy hunting!

I thought of that, it was a trade off, the convenience of having the speaker and cable connections accessible was irresistible. The case is pretty friggin rugged i imagine it would survive a few spills and splashes.

No luck as of yet, kinda broke right now, and looks like we just bought a new house. With a three car garage and an 1100 SQ FT ADU basement man cave, plenty of room for a nice HAM shack. Probably counting on someone in the local HAM club loaning me something. Planning on taking my extra test at the FEB meeting so hopefully by then I'll have something to play around with.
