Amazing Ken

How much power did you deliver to the aerial system to get 5W ERP?

I had just finished putting the Synth board in and modifying the
BPF,   2 days ago was able to copy VK3 on 630M for what we
think is the first VK to KH6.   Not as far as Kens trip,  but was
nice to see the K3 working very well.
Antenna here on receive is 40ft high 80 meter dipole fed with ladder line
shorted in the shack,  fed to the K3.
Transmit is 160 meter InvL  70 ft high with variometer at the
base for tuning/loading.
Working to modify my transverter for K3 direct input now
instead of using 10mhz as the IF.
I missed last nite due to my computer mother board giving up
the ghost.
Thanks Elecraft.
