KX3 Operation in Cornwall   June 14th, 2014

My operation in Cornwall was by no means intense, but I did make a few excursions with my Folding bike, together with KX3 and my Alex loop. This gave me operation on all bands from 7MHz to 30MHz. With this combination powered by internal AA cells, I operated at power levels from 2.5 got 5W. Best DX was into UA9. All operation was on CW using the Elecraft paddle key.

The wholes station, including the antenna, easily packs into a small rucksack. With the Alex loop I didn’t need to use the KX3 ATU and switched it to bypass in the menu system. For listening I used my iPhone ear buds and logged on my iPad which also doubled as my map.

All in all, an enjoyable few days. Peter G3OJV

Hello Pete, what app, or prog, do you use on the iPad for logging ?

I just use the note pad section and transfer data when I get back. Never really been happy with the logging apps – they all tend to be too clever for one man portable operation.
