KX2 Portable Case
Antennas , Design , Operating , Radios / August 6, 2016

For storage and travel, I put my KX2 and all essential accessories into a B&W case.  The Elecraft Lowe padded case fits nicely as well.  Inside the Lowe case is the KX2 radio, paddle, earbuds, and microphone.  The other trail essentials in the rest of the plastic case are the paracord guys, guy rings, stakes, notebook / log, PackTenna Mini 9:1 UNUN and wire antenna, 10′ RG316 or RG174 coax with BNC connectors, 13′ counterpoise wire, PowerPole to 2.1mm DC power cable, and extra paracord and S-clips. I like using the hard plastic box to store everything at home or toss it into the car for a trip.  When on the trail, I ditch the plastic box and put accessories into a zippered case.  Then I throw the Lowe soft case with the radio and the accessory case in the backpack along with a 32-1/2′ PackTenna telescoping fiberglass mast.  The mast collapses down to only 26″ so it’s easy to strap to the side of the pack.
