I took it out to the park on Sunday to operate, but unfortunately the SFI was so bad it was just a waste of time. It seems we had a minor solar storm.
Although operating the radio was a waste of time, I did take time with the help of Rick, VE3ORY, to cut to the correct length the new Packtenna I bought several months ago now. It will be interesting to see how this antenna performs with the KX3.
Hopefully, although the weather is starting to turn and get cooler, I will still be able to get out and put the radio through its paces before the snow flies this winter. It will also make a change for Winter Field Day as it's small enough to operate from the front seat of my van for that event....I might even be able to stay warm.
