External speaker for TR-35?

Looking for suggestions for a small, but reasonable quality portable wired speaker to use with the TR-35. Any recommendations?

Re: QRP Transceiver Comparison

Morning Jay, I have the TR-35, QCX-mini (20m) and QCX (30m). All were purchased built as, due to professional commitments, I don't have the time to build these days. Firstly, they are all great radios and work very well. The QCXs are perhaps more robust for field work and operate via an easy to use ...

Re: POTA on 30M?

POTA is not a contest and therefore I would have no issue using the band as either an activator or hunter.

Just my thoughts...

Re: LiPo Batteries - XT and RC types

Thanks Skip, I have a couple of LiOn packs and a spare for my KX2. These are all good as they have a BMS within. However I have more radios than battery packs and am looking to complete my set of "go-kits" each with their own battery. That said, I like what you have built, food for thought...

LiPo Batteries - XT and RC types

All, Quick question. Has anyone had success powering their QRP rigs from RC (radio control) LiPo batteries? These apppear to be compact, high energy density and available within the voltage ranges we use. Reason I ask is that the range of LiPo batteries available in the UK seems to be somewhat less ...

Re: What QRP Rigs do you have, and how do you use them?

Good topic, before I start, I'm a self confessed QRP addict..... - KX2 for mobile, camping and dry portable ops - G90 for planned mobile ops - TX500 for SOTA and wet portable ops - MTR3b for SOTA - SW-3B kept in the car for random ops - TR-35 home work-desk companion ops - Tr(u)SDX for novelty ops -...

Re: TR-35 group/forum

I have to say the AME Porta Paddle does look rather nice and would appear to be a good shape to hold in the hand whilst keying. Any comments from Porta Paddle users on this? I'm trying to find a key with similar functionality to my Palm key, which I seem to move from radio to radio! Thanks Richard M...

Re: Packable POTA Field Kits

Brian,

Many thanks for sharing. Some significant similarities with my own kit (less hat and chair)!

Re: TR-35 group/forum

Thanks Brian, Interesting commentary on the keys. Like many of us multi-radio operators, I too try to keep dedicated kits and have multiple "sets" for my KX2 (general portable use including POTA), KX1 (gentle occasional use), MX-14s (very gentle occasional use), TX500 (wet POTA), MTR3b (SO...

Re: Packable POTA Field Kits

Interesting report Brian, I manage to get my KX2 and all the bits I need in the ES60 case, but I recognise everyone's needs are different.

I'd be interested in your TR-35 setup as a new TR-35 owner.
