Re: A power pack for AAs and NiMh AA batteries

Jim Sheldon

Thanks for posting this Walter.  I don't have a KX3, but I do have a KX2 and this has the potential of becoming a very nice addition to the "Go Kit" along with the 40' fiberglass push-up mast that collapses to just over 3 feet.

Reading the KX3 reflector yielded a great fix for making a power pack for portable operations and even a possible backup battery for those HTs that use battery modules you cannot charge on an outing.

Kevin - K4KPK has an inexpensive solution and it's main feature is fewer contacts than a regular battery holder that has too many springs and an easy way for power losses.

Take a look at his webpage,

Kevin - K4KPK is a SOTA member and these folks always seem to come up with a great fix for Ham Radio needs.

At Ozarkcon this year we have John Watkins - NØEVH as a guest speaker for SOTA - Summits on the Air. You really would not want to miss his presentation!

See you all at is gonna be fun!
