K3 Has anyone compiled a macro for 630 Meter operation
Wondering if anyone has already assembled a macro for the K3 to place the
K3 into KXV3B "Test" mode and whatever other settings required to switch
the K3 for operation at 630 meters........sand back again to "Normal" mode?
Re: K3 Has anyone compiled a macro for 630 Meter operation
Yes there is one around, I think Wayne sent one out some time back,
Better question is, how about making 630m a transverter band and
all the settings and switching done automatically as you select 630M.
Plenty hams using K3 on 630M, asking for an update please for all..
I forget the exact price but think it was in the $60-70
neighborhood. Rejection is something like 60-80 dB.
I did see an improvement it the receive noise floor below about 520-KHz
Connect to the KXV3 xvt-Rx BNC jack. Use of the K3 on 630m requires
a KXV3 as you transmit in the TEST mode at 1mw thru the KXV3 xvt-Tx
BNC. This is good as you will need to drive a PA which will not pass
received signals. An external coax TR relay is needed after the PA
to bypass RF to the xvt-Rx port.

Considering that all I hear down there is broadcast station birdies, I'm
guessing you're right. :-(
