My KX2 Antenna Specs. Speaker Wire Antenna resonant on 20 meters. 4K

My KX2 Antenna Specs. Speaker Wire Antenna resonant on 20 meters. 4K

Good redundancy with the cameras. One overheated from sun exposure and didn’t record.
My first antenna I made for the KX2 has served me well around the Country as well as DX to South America, Japan and Italy. Not the lightest but for sure packs a punch from a SOTA Summit.

The dealies are called cord locks.

Parks on the Air in Grand Teton NP, Wyoming. FT-891 and Chameleon MPAS. POTA. 4K

Parks on the Air in Grand Teton NP, Wyoming. FT-891 and Chameleon MPAS. POTA. 4K

I took a trip to Grand Teton NP in Wyoming. 14 hours away and spent 4 days and 3 nights out there. One of those days was in Yellowstone. Grand Teton NP and Jackson Hole Wyoming were among my Dads favorite places I when up there during Fathers Day week because this was the last place we traveled to before he passed away. Good memories. I wish I had seen a moose like we did 14 years ago.
