I have done quite a lot of portable operating on LF (both 73 and 
136kHz), and have had successes and failures. Unless you can find a 
large support, the easiest antenna to set up is one on a kite. It is 
easy and cheap to get a 60m (almost) vertical erected, and this will 
give you a good signal even if you don't have everything working
