KX3 hardshell case question

w5sum
Howdy men
I’m thinking of getting a hard shell case to put my KX3 kit in. I want it to hold not only the KX3 but one of the SS30 power supplies and accessories. Anyone done this? Recommendations?

Re: KX3 hardshell case question

If you're talking about an Astron SS30, that's a lot of beef to run a KX3.
Are you running the KXPA100 also?  Do you want to house that in your case
as well?

I have my KX3, PX3 and a LiFePO4 battery (and mic/key/etc)  in a Harbor
Freight case, the Apache 3800.   The power supplies come along in a
backpack where my mag loop lives as well.   If you're running QRO and you
really want to tota that, you'll need a Nanuk 930 or something.

If you're not looking to bring the amp, you can look at a PAE-KX33 power
supply which will supply you with plenty of power for the KX3,

And to answer your question , yes the PAE-KX33 runs the KX3 at full power.

Re: KX3 hardshell case question

Ignacy
For a few years my KX3 travels in a Pelican case that is about 9 x 6.5 x 4.
Aside from KX3, inside there is space for a log, 2 spools of wire, KX3
keyer, binding post, and 4S2P Li-Ion battery.  The battery lasts a few 2 hr
outings.  
Ignacy, NO9E
