Using 8 Ni-MH chargeable batteries and a MFJ tuner – borrowed by my neighbour João Fragoso, CT7ABE – I made QSOs with DL4ISX e EI7JK, both QRP stations.
I don’t know why we buy transceivers with so much features and buttons!!
From now on I will operate with the Elecraft KX-3, the Elecraft KX-1 and this one!
But this rig will be my pocket station (literaly) !
Now, i want to build a trap dipole for 20/30/40 (avoid ATU) because I don’t want to lower and erect the wire every time I want to change bands.
I bought pico traps from Sotabeams (http://www.sotabeams.co.uk/pico-traps-kit-pair/).
Each trap weight is less than 5 grams: It will be better than carry an ATU to the summits!!! 🙂
CW and QRP are awesome !
