Things related to equipment from Elecraft.

I’m back!

It’s been a while since I’ve been on the air. Actually, a bit over 3 years since my Elecraft K-Line (K3, P3, and KPA500) has been out of storage and powered up. It took a full day to get everything out and hooked up along with getting my old Hustler 6BTV setup. Everything worked as expected and I made a couple of contacts on 40m. I need to get the 160/80m wire antenna up.

This being the first time I’ve operated from our property in TN, it’s nice to be in a relatively RF quiet place compared to our previous QTH in SC.

Elecraft PX3

Received my Elecraft PX3 in Oct.  Awesome addition to my portable station.  I had my KX-Line setup and worked one of the digital contests without a problem.  I’m very happy with the KX-Line!

KXPA100

My KXPA100 arrived last week.  Got it assembled and am very pleased.  Just need to figure out the portable power to drive this thing now.  Solar and a decent battery is what I’m thinking.
