Hotel Portable - Items to Take

The above picture shows the inventory of items that I usually consider for hotel operating trips. As always, your list may be significantly different. Most of the smaller items are packed in a Plano brand plastic compartment box. Not shown is the radio transceiver or voltage step-down transformer.

From the upper left, going down each vertical row:

What have we missed? How about paper and pencils to copy those DX stations? How about a watch or travel clock adjusted to UTC time? Maybe a short extension cord would be handy.

OK, you get the idea. Lay out every component of your portable QRP station then add the tools and spare items that you think might be needed to keep it on the air.
