KX3: Cool Go Box

I just came across this on the internet the other day, but I thought it was a very cool way to package the KX3 for portable operation.

If  someone would commercialize this, I think it would be very popular.

    I keep running across the unit and forget to bookmark it for later. I really like this packaging and concept. Now with the PX3 on order I maybe glad I did not follow up on it sooner. My thoughts are now to make it hold both the KX3 and the PX3. If not that, then the $400 Zero box I picked up at a garage sale for $20 maybe my next venture. The lid can be the ground plane for the 2M option also….So many choices, so little time and even less cash…

    I would worry about heat build-up, the KX3 uses it’s case as the PA heatsink. Not a recommended setup for digital modes unless the rig can be removed.
