I did not bring my KX3 on my last hike up to Camp Handy because I do worry about how to protect it when hiking. Well I discovered the Side KX for my radio. A simple indigenous way to protect my radio while traveling. It took all of 10 mins to install it, and that includes the time took to find my missing 10mm socket. Here is a quick gallery of the unboxing and install.
I’m looking forward to taking my KX3 with me on my next hike and using a simple random wire antenna on my next hike!
