I really wanted a Red Ryder BB Gun but I am pretty sure I would have put an eye out by now.
|With compass in the stock!|
Instead of the BB Gun Santa brought me a watch to use on activations. It clips to my pack, shows 24 hour GMT time, has a compass and more importantly the numbers are big enough for me to see them.
|This will come in handy for SOTA activations|
|Pretty close fit|
I have some styrofoam that I was thinking about using but I had a few packets of Sugru left. If you do not know what Sugru is here is a LINK.
|This stuff is great!|
|Bottom part done|
The ATS4 is not my ultra light weight radio as I usually use it with a linked dipole, 25 feet of rg-174 coax and a 1400mah battery so it is more for longer SOTA activations or an evening in the park. In other words I do not mind adding a little weight to this setup. For ultralight SOTA activations I go with the MTR and EFHW.
