“Lean-to” homebrew stand for Elecraft’s KX1

This is a good one and will work for the PFR3A also. A perfect solution for a vexing problem. I don't own a KX1; but I do know this happens with a PFR3A - when the radio is laying flat on a table top, it is hard to tell if the RIT is on unless you are looking right down onto the LED display. More than once I have used the PFR3A on the shack table and since the angle wasn't right, I came to realize that I wasn't listening where I thought I was. I had inadvertently left the RIT on and didn't see the illuminated decimal point in the display. This homebrew tilt stand will get the angles just right so that won't happen again.

I am going to have to construct one of these. Thanks, Pete for sharing the great post, plans and idea!

Are QRPers neat, or what ?!?

  1. Good morning Larry, I received an email about this KX1 stand. I have the KX1 going to give the CD case/KX1 stand a go.

  2. Larry,

    TenTec makes a much prettier stand, though it will cost you considerably more... $35.
