‘Twas one of those days at work where I felt like I was beaten with a pool cue, run over by a bus and then dragged in by the cat.
No kit building tonight as I am in recovery mode. Tomorrow is a much needed day off. If the weather cooperates (scattered thunderstorms predicted all day), I will try to get some yard work done.
If it doesn’t cooperate, well then, I guess I’ll just have to spend time down the basement, working towards the finish line of the K3 build! Oh dear, how will I ever deal with that! The horror of not being able to do yard work in 90F+ weather is just too horrible to imagine!
The other day, I purchased on Amazon a 6X9 padded case for the KX3.
It ended up being about $10 dollars less than buying directly from the manufacturer. The idea is to have a padded case to protect the KX3 when I use my CQ knapsack for hiking, rather than the Lowepro 150. The CQ knapsack is less padded than the Lowepro, but will provide a little more room for accessories and antennas.
When we go up to Lake George later this summer, in addition to taking the EFHWs, I will also take the Buddistick and the magmount. That combo has proven to be super in the past; but for that, I will need to take my Autek analyzer along, as that makes setting up the Buddisick easier. No painter’s pole like last year. If I set up near the cabin, it will be the Buddistick – on the hiking trail it will be the EFHW tossed up a tree. Obviously, I will be bringing my homebrewed wrist rocket with me, also.
Vacation can’t come soon enough!
