Elecraft AX-1 Whip Antenna

Elecraft AX-1 Whip Antenna

I will be using my KX-3 several times a year on road trips, and since I always bring camera gear, and I have a nice Bogen tripod, the AX-1 makes some sense.

AX-1 Tripod Mount

I wouldn’t use the AX-1 right on the rig, but really like the tripod option.

AX-1 40M base loading coil

The clincher on my interest is the 40M coil that was released not long ago.

Its a bit pricey though – and is something that can easily be home brewed. However, sometimes, the packaging is worth the extra cost.

I might go check it out at Pacificon next month.
