    Thanks Lin. It gets a lot of use and works very well.

    I'll be making a few more mods to it soon including adding bluetooth cat control and rerouting the power connectors so the battery can be charged in the bag.

    Those Zippy LiFePO4s are great arn't they ! I modified the foam in my KX3 carry case so that the battery fits in there as well :-)

    Yes Peter, I love them. They could have been made for /P equipment!

    I'm planning of getting another one soon so I can have twice the operating time
