Christmas Holidays 2015

Portable operations from Mount Washington on Vancouver Island B.C. Elevation is 3700 Feet or about 1200 Meters. Using my Elecraft KX3 and some wire tossed over the balcony railing. Made some nice contacts on 10-meters to Japan and Alaska. Lots of snow here for skiing and walks in the snowy forest.

T30D Dxpedition

I just worked T30D DXpedition on 10 meters using my KX3 and 12 watts into a new LNR Quad. He was as surprised as I was.

KX3 - 12 Watts and a fresh water amplifier

I moved to a new QTH on Vancouver Island called Prospect Lake. I am so excited to have a real low noise floor and a lake that seems to really amplify my signal. I worked stations on 10 meters, 20, 40 and 80 meters using 12 watts and a LNR Par End Fedz antenna. I will update the site more often now that I rediscovered the joy in HF Radio again. James VE7HJ
