Today I went on a hike to the same place as where I did portable operations before. Weather was perfect but there was a contest and the FT-817 had problems with the modulation. Managed to work three stations with the (tr)uSDX but all in all it was quite unsatisfying. The HF-P1 antenna is not very good without a tuner so I think I will try the self built 20m vertical the next time. Still trying to find a 6m long fishing rod that fits into the rucksack...
