New Elecraft KX2 (yes KX2)

Jim Sheldon
 

Looks like the new Elecraft radio for release at Dayton is going to be
the KX2 -- All I can find on it so far is a picture on a Japanese
website but it does look legit.

Norm, a good way to save some weight in that go bag would be to make a copy of that back inside cover of the manual and laminate it.  It has all the info you would probably ever need for the K1(great choice of a go bag rig, especially if it has the internal tuner).

Hi all,
I bought a small aluminum photographers case from a discount store, cost about ten bucks. I have just returned from Brisbane back to Adelaide via Virgin Australia with the case as handluggage. In the case I had my FT-817, an antenna ( included tuner), wall wart - but I had room for a p/s. Airlines get iffy over batteries! The full catastrophe! Nobody turned a hair and I really enjoyed the freedom of carrying a portable rig. It's a thought, anyway.

I have used a "511" tactical ammo bag for carry on - holds the laptop, kx3 and misc stuff. 
It has huge cargo pockets
Ive used this bag for carry on when I've flown cheapskate airlines and they bill you for everything

You can put the misc. stuff in your packed luggage, but you should take the radios on board with you.  Or at least that is what the TSA recommends.

I actually have gotten to the point of taking my backpack, with all the actual radio gear, laptop, and iPad,  and a carryon sized suitcase that holds my magnetic loop and most of the other things I need - mostly underwear.  I wear hospital scrubs 99% of the time when I travel so I just need clean underwear and socks.  It works for me.

Finally, Hamlog and Rumlog have versions for iPhone iPad.  I’m sure there are others. I found Rumlog easier to use but that’s because I also use it on my laptop (Macbook Air).

WOW  calling the Rocky Mountain Regional and Continental cw practice net.. 

Funny thing.. with 14 reporting station in the double digits over noise ... and only one station answering...

it is NOT band conditions... what is it? 

The one station that did call is in Ca.


I'll be on 7.0625 in 15 minutes.. we'll see how that works.

You might consider a small backback like people use at college, etc. That way if you end up having to walk around at the airport, your destination, etc. you can do so "hands free".
