Mario recommends LED strip light headlamps for nighttime SWLing

Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Mario Filippi (N2HUN), who writes:

I recently purchased a pair of LED strip light headbands from Amazon for use while doing jobs around the house in areas where the lighting is poor.

These might be helpful also for SWLs and hams, especially for listening at night when in the field. They boast a 220 degree arc of light, high/low/flasher settings, rear red flasher, USB rechargeable, weigh about 5 ounces and are more comfortable than the older bulky headlamps.

There are many different versions of these strip LED lights available so you can shop around for the one that best fits your needs.

This is excellent, Mario. Thank you for sharing. I’m a huge fan of headlamps, but I’ve never seen an LED strip headlamp–I see where that wide arc of light would be useful.

    Excellent recommendation. I own several headbands (LED and incandescent) and they are also helpful when arriving at DXpeditions in the evenings, for stringing antennas.

    Nice, indeed, but I think I’ll stay with my “Petzl” headlamp unit, it demonstrated to be reliable and it will be useful if I’ll ever go spelunking (literally) again 😀
