Default Temporary Moble/Portable shack

I got "volunteered" to be on an out of town run for a few weeks, so I knew I would need to bring a few radios along.
In the truck i have a kenwood d710a for APRS.
AREA51


Last week I had my 996xt mounted in here too, but I have a passenger where the 996 was, so it got pushed into my bag for after work scanning. Next week I'll be by myself again, so the 996xt will be back in the cab with me. I'm going to experiment with a home-made serial Y splitter to see if I can get one GPS to run on both radios. I saw a post around somewhere that indicated this would work.
Here's my shack for the evening, I'm running unitrunker on the state's EDACS system trying to map out and verify sites and frequencies.

Rail fans might be interested in seeing the old train depot across the street. The sign says it was built in 1923

I don't know either. It can be a pain holding the mic coming out of the ceiling while shifting gears. I try not to do it, but sometimes you know it's gonna be your turn to talk next, and you need to shift; so instead of letting the mic swing and bang around you grab hold and shift.

Honestly, I'm surprised no one has said anything about the AREA51 digi, or the fact that the control head is held to the dash with masking tape!
