Belt clip for KX3 after you install the 2 or 4 Meter module?

James kvochick
Now that I've installed the 2 meter module in my KX3, are there plans in the works at Elecraft to provide a nice belt clip for my KX3, so I can carry the radio with the antenna held vertically?

Oh yeah, and how about a KXPA100-2 amplifier?
 


I'm just kidding.....

Cheers

Don't kid -- it is a good request and I will double down on it.

Now, it does not need to be a KXPA100-2, I would be happy with something like a KXPA80-2 or some other reasonable power level boost.

So, Elecraft, how about a 80 to 100 watt 2-meter brick-style amp that works with the KX3 with 2-meters and the K3 with 2-meters or with my 2 meter Yaesu HT.

Yes, I know these can be bought elsewhere but there is something special about the "Made By Elecraft" label!!

Look for a used RF Concepts or Mirage (pre-MFJ) brick amp that produces
150W with 2W of drive. They are rare, but great amps.

I assume that you're kidding about both.

It would truly be a shame to take a fine piece of radio craftsmanship
like the KX3 and look like a member of the "shack on the belt" club.

Of course, I've been seen on campus years ago with either a slide rule
or more than one calculator hanging from my belt.  :-)

Of course, some of us had a 12 inch slide rule on the belt and a 5 inch in
the shirt pocket.

I still have my 12 inch Post slide rule, but I no longer have it on my belt.
I also have my 5 inch Post, but it is no longer in my shirt pocket.
Those days are gone, but there "was a time" when they were required
apparel if one was to succeed in engineering school and after.

I still have my 12" K&E Log-Log Duplex Vector rule, here on the desk,
and I use it for a few things for which I can't remember the equations
but I do remember the motions.  Every so much quicker than looking
functions up in the HP48GX books.  I mourn the final demise of the
HP41CX.  The case for the rule is long gone.

In addition to my 12 and 5 inch Post slide rules, I have my Dad's K&E.

Re: Slide rules

Mike Markowski-2
I have a couple nice bamboo Hemmi slide rules, one even devoted to
electronics calculations, but my most cherished is a cheap 12" log-log
plastic Sterling.  My late mom bought it for me from a drug store when I
was in 8th grade.  It took weeks of begging and groveling till she gave
me the $6 for it.  Then I'm sure I drove my parents crazy showing how I
could calculate things.  Geek from day one.  :-)
