Many years ago I got my technician's license, made one contact, and proceeded to never talk on it again. Times and my financial circumstances have changed, so now I am the proud owner of a Electraft KX3

Living in a small apartment in an urban area means I need to operate portable. On the agenda for building is a random length vertical feed by transformer, as well as just trying the KX3 direct on a piece of wire

Modes: in addition to the built in modes I want to go try digital voice and FT8. Time to go figure out how to connect the radio to a computer.

I use a LiPO4 battery as my power source. Lightweight, longlasting, and portable. What's not to like

Someday I hope to expand beyond HF to microwaves. I've been searching for the good intro microwave project.
