The New Support Trailer is Here!

It's a 7'x16' all-aluminum Nitro cargo trailer with an RV side door and drop-down rear ramp. Right now, the Trailer Committee is working to design the interior fixtures and plan the modifications and installation. When done, it should have: 

  • 7' workbench with parts and tool storage drawers
  • On-board battery and charger/power supply
  • Bright LED lighting inside and out
  • Storage for several HF beams and VHF/UHF verticals
  • Shelves for radios, test gear, APRS trackers, etc. 
  • 3 roof-top NMO antenna mounts
  • Folding tables and chairs
  • 10'x15" canopy
  • Both AB-577 military towers
  • Cables, push-up masts, portable lighting, and more
  • Room for a generator and fuel
  • Exterior graphics will be similar to the existing Communications Trailer. 

Take a look at the current floor plan design (not to scale)

(If you have a hitch and electric brake controller on your full-size pickup or SUV, AE1H would like to hear from you!)

Field Deployment Kits
As a result of several large equipment donations, we're also now building some task-specific kits, such as one for Summits On The Air (SOTA) and US Islands activations. Do you have any ideas?
