Ham Radio Review – Elecraft KX3 Soft Case

Ham Radio Review - Elecraft KX3 Soft Case

I use a Condor H2O Pouch to protect my KX3 when it’s not in use. This pouch allows me to keep the KXSides on the KX3. It’s a bit on the heavy side, but it gives very good protection when not in use. I’ve put this case in my luggage when flying and haven’t had any issues.

#Ham #Radio #ARRL #2MC
INFO: Next week’s Net (7-15-20) will be over on Nick’s / KN6DAL channel Link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvQ5mDcc4zlgdW10hy3c5Fg

This is the 2 Meter Crew Anti-Net / Tech Net. It’s on air every Wednesday night at 19:00 PST. We started this in the later part of 2019 as a bunch of local Hams to have a place and time to meet weekly to chat. This is not a net in the traditional way and everyone is a visitor. We take check-ins so we can circle back to people and give them a chance to chat. There is a Facebook Group to join under “2MC”.
EchoLink and AllStar was added in the beginning of 2020 to allow people globally to check in and join the fun. Also, we leave the links up all the time. So feel free to key up the repeater anytime.

Check Out Our Discord: https://discord.gg/vT7Yh8Q

Primary EchoLink is W6VVR-R and Secondary is WG5EEK-L. You can also use our AllStar Node 51094

Live AllStar/EchoLink website & more: https://WG5EEK.com

A huge thank you to the Vaca Valley Radio Club – W6VVR for the use of the repeater. It’s a great machine sitting on top of Mt. Vaca around 2,800 feet high, about 60 miles East from San Francisco. Link to club’s website: https://w6vvr.net/
