Portable Kit Coming Together

In looking for a decent power source for my new Elecraft KX3, I came up with a pair of LifeSource 6.6V 3200mAH LifePo4 batteries connected in series.  Gives me around 13V at full charge and is relatively light weight and compact.  I used some double-sided velco strap to hold the two packs together.  Works very well and is light enough that I could make up 2 separate packs which should give some decent operating time.

I spent a couple of minutes out in the yard yesterday and tuned some wire to 40m for a portable antenna.  Using some small line, I’ve got a decent setup for getting the antenna up into a tree.

Now a travel case…
