KX3 from PEI

Yesterday I has the chance to set up the KX3 while vacationing on Prince Edward Island. Unfortunately the weather was not great but I managed to get an end fed wirestrung between two small pines and down to the deck. I heard a few summits but they couldn’t hear the little KX3 on the EFW.

Much better luck was to be had in the evening. There was a QRP contest starting at 0100z, the Run For The Bacon (RFTB). Dialing down the KX3 to 5 watts I managed eight contacts, one a far as Germany! I took a break in the middle of the test and even managed to check into the reddit net on 75 meters.

Off to do some bike riding and tourist stuff today, probably get back on 40cw later this evening.

Don’t forget about the club meeting on the 7th, hope to see you there.
