Back after 3 weeks as SV8
« on: July 03, 2015, 22:46:23 UTC »
Back home after 3 weeks SV8/GM0LVI/P.
Feeling pretty pleased as I made 248 contacts with the KX3 and Buddistick. Club members - Oleg  UR5FA and Vitas LY5G made it into the log. Vitas seems to find me everywhere!!
Best DX  was 4 JA contacts and I'd a bit of fun a few times running pileups after being spotted on the DX Cluster. Spent most of my time on 17m as 20m seemed to be full of contests.
Last June and September in SV8 I found the KX3's PA was overheating but have now fitted an external heat sink and it seems to have solved that problem.

My next /P operation will be from the Summer Isles EU - 092 first week in August and I'll have enough space for a multi-band dipole which will be the first time I''ve been able to operate /P  QRP with a dipole, so will be an interesting experience.
