The World’s Lightest Ham Radio Microphone For A Few Dollars In Parts?

The Worlds Lightest Portable Ham Radio Microphone For A Few Dollars In Parts?

Build one yourself! It weighs 9 grams! (0.3oz!)

Ideal for POTA / SOTA and anyone running a KX2 / KX3 (just chuck a different plug on it you’re using something like a Yaesu 817 / Yaesu 818 / Xeigu G90 etc!)

I got the idea from this from watching a K6ARK video where he uses a slightly different headset (but the same sort of idea!) for his "Sub 2lb HF Go Kit" – video here! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JtvrVSnLD6E
