While less than ideal from a pure portability standpoint, a way to handle
multiple radios is to stop by the sporting goods section of a big box store
and find an inexpensive hunting vest with lots of pockets. I saw one with
space for two radios, a voice recorder, a couple of extra batteries, and a
low noise preamp. Everything was neatly connected with custom wires, and
both radios were readily available for tuning and operating on the front.
All you had to do was hook up the antenna, turn everything one, and off you
went. I saw this bit of HamWear demoed at a local hamfest several years
