I use an Icom IC-718 barefoot at home with the AH-4 autotuner and either a 300' wire antenna of stranded 14-ga house wire supported by Hackberry trees or a 31' vertical in an S-9 fiberglass pole. During thunderstorm season, a 20-meter dipole in the attic is used with an MFJ-949E tuner.

I enjoy operating portable when camping, traveling, etc. where I use an Icom IC-706Mk2G, the AH-4 autotuner and either vehicle battery, solar panels/battery, portable Honda generator or commercial power. My antenna is usually the aforementioned stranded 14 ga house wire pulled up by 3/32" black dacron cord over convenient trees, tents, bushes or lamp poles.

I also like to operate bicycle mobile with an older Icom, an IC-706Mk2, the AH-4 autotuner and a 102" stainless steel (CB) whip antenna on the luggage rack. I put the control head on the handlebars and plug in my single ear headset/mic and a handlebar-mounted push-to-talk switch. My power source consists of three 9AH sealed lead acid batteries hanging from the top tube and a battery booster to provide 100 watt transmit capability for a fair amount of time. I don't spend much time on the road, rather confining myself to neighborhood streets or dedicated bike trails. It is heavy and not built for speed but fun! I've had contacts on 15, 17, 20 and 40 meters with stations in Azores, Colombia, Cuba, France, Honduras, Martinique, Slovakia, Slovenia, Trinidad & Tobago and the US, to include an air mobile! I hope to work bike to bike when able.
