My X1M Transceiver Field Kit is Ready

26 May

I finally got all the pieces of my X1M field kit built and tested. I’ll be going out for 5 days camping in my motorhome next week, so I plan to spend some time evaluating the whole setup.

The kit consists of the X1M Transceiver, a 7AH battery, a homemade slingshot antenna launcher, an EFHW wire antenna supported by 0.07″ dacron cord, an antenna tuner/SWR indicator an audio interface box and any one of my Android mobile devices for software/rig control. For now, I’m using an ASUS Transformer (because it has a keyboard) and the DroidPSK & Pocket RxTX apps available from the Google store.
