How did it affect radio conditions, Matt, particularly as regards noise and on which bands? Were you using the new Synth boards?

Re: OT: Don't forget eclipse

Matt Zilmer-3
Hi David,

During the ecliipse, I was on 40m using a KX3 / KXPA100 mobile in
western Colorado.  I was operating below 7.2 MHz, SSB.  Honestly, I
didn't notice any difference in noise or propagation.  Part of the
time, I was in contact with stations in Missouri, Virginia, and
Wyoming.

It was early evening, from around 7:30 to 9 PM, here.  Because I was
driving, I could only observe the eclipse visually for a few minutes
before heading away from it.  Visually, it was quite a sight.

I *wish* I could fit the K3 into mobile ops, but the car is a Honda
Civic with severe space limitations.

73,
matt

Don't give up too easily, Matt. Saw a Prius a
month ago with five antennas mounted. Since I have
a Prius, I was pretty amazed!

Re: OT: Don't forget eclipse

Matt Zilmer-3
Heh.  Nice mental image, Phil.  The Prius must've looked like a
porcupine, but one that works all bands / all modes.

The Civic does well with one VHF FM xcvr for APRS / voice and a KX3.
My XYL won't allow "full use" of the passenger seating area for added
radios, but I suppose some of these could be trunk-mounted like the
KXPA100.

On the road to Cedar City, UT.

Re: OT: Don't forget eclipse

I have an Yaesu FT-857(?) with a remotable head.
Rig can go elsewhere, only the head needs to be up
front.

Hmm .. not sure how to do that with a K3, and the
Yaesu is still in our CR-V. HF antenna on the
Prius is more of a challenge than rig mounting.
