My wife decided this winter that she would like to see me playing radio outdoors rather than in the shack during the summer months so graciously purchased a KX2 for me for Christmas. During the long wait for it to arrive I think I read most everything on your blog about 3 times. I noticed in several of your postings that you were using a folding lap desk designed and printed by CarolAnne N0RNM.
Her design inspired me so I designed a copy cat of sorts. I wanted mine to be slightly larger so it ended up being 8.5” wide and 14” high when unfolded. 8.5 X 7 when folded up. Like CarolAnne’s it has the same recessed area to attach a sticky pad and I added cutouts in which to put a leg strap.
Now if the weather would only improve so I can go do my first SOTA and POTA activations.
If anyone would like to print one of these lap boards for themselves I have put the files up here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:5320260

Very cool, Dale! I love it.
And, wow! Your wife purchased you a KX2 for Christmas? She’s a keeper indeed! 🙂
By the way, loads of people have asked me about the N0RNM kneeboard and I believe within the next couple of months it may be available for purchase. This would be convenient, of course, for those without a 3D printer at home.
I’ll certainly post an announcement here on QRPer.com when it available.
Again, Dale, thank you for sharing your project!
