Over the past couple of weeks I have been going out portable operating with the Elecraft KX2 and still getting contacts under poor conditions , The main location is the Heugh Lighthouse & Battery which is Cashota G00572 / LH UK-0188 and WWFF GFF-0348 and a nice big cannon to strap the 10m pole or sometimes the small Alex Loop antenna which is perfect for trips out and the best distance so far is around 5000 miles on 5w .
If you want to get out operating portable a standard res dipole is so easy to make and will get you on the choosen band .
My next trip will be over the west coast of the UK operating WWFF and also on a evening on 80m around 3680-3700 at GFF-0348 or GFF-0208 which are both located in Hartlepool .
I have also been active operating PSK and JT modes from the home QTH and hope to have the KX2 soon set up on these modes again portable .
Hope to hear you all on the bands soon and check out the latest copy of Practical Wireless for more updates on my trips out .
Until the next blog 73 44 all de Carl 2E0HPI
