KX3 Pedestrian Mobile

eric norris
Has any thought been given to providing a neck strap slot or something similar so the KX3 can be used pedestrian mobile?  

Also nifty would be some screw holes in the case to which a small antenna whip mount could be attached for this kind of operation using the internal ATU.

I have not stopped drooling since the announcement!  :-)

...and I want a mount for my walker! Also,  a fox-tail for my
screwdriver antenna on the walker. It should say Ele-gramps...

I would think a neck strap used on an RC transmitter should do a job to
remove some of the weight.   I the meantime, I expect to start lifting 1
quart milk jugs to strengthen my grip and strength. The 17 meter antenna
can't wait to get its new home on the KX3. :-)

Remember those watch bands from the 70's?  We built up a scale model in the shop and it fits perfectly on one's forearm.
