Bug with Big Antennas

Not sure if this is a grasshopper, though it does hop, and I did see it in the grass. A Google Images search of grasshopper with red stripe revealed...nothing, absolutely nothing. Still, this dude's antennas are huge! Like twice the length of his body. You try jumping with those. After also taking a picture of a giant Katydid, turns out that these is a katydid and not a grasshopper based on the length of the antennae. They also apparently have big nuts as well.
