My setup: working portable /p

I'm living close to the Zagreb mountain Medvednica ("Place where bears live"), or more commonly used name Sljeme ("Top of the mountain").
Whenever weather is fine, I go out to one of the few good locations near my house and spend late afternoons listening and trying to make contact.
Otherwise I'm keying from my balcony.
