CQ CQ CQ Lockpickers

As some of you may know, one of my big hobbies is amateur radio. Anybody else here into the hobby? I'd love to schedule a time for some of us to try to make some long-distance HF contacts with one another.

How much was that setup?

The code is hidden in the tumblers. One position opens the lock, another position opens one of these doors...

The radio you see in that picture is an Elecraft KX3, originally purchased so I could work low-power when camping and such. I've since added on a number of components, but overall my station probably cost me between $2.5K and $3k.

There are far cheaper options to amatuer radio, though. So if you are considering getting a license (which I highly suggest!) don't let price dissuade you. Especially for VHF & UHF operation you can get on the air for under $50.
