About Me:SP/GI4DOH

I was licensed in 1975 and I operate on a variety of bands and modes but mainly on CW at the moment.

The photo shows me operating as SP/GI4DOH in Krakow, Poland, in October 2013. The equipment is my Elecraft KX3 with a Palm Radio Pico Paddle (needs a light touch) and a G4TPH Magnetic Loop antenna.

Noise:

K3 APF WidgetMy home QTH is in a residential area with lots of noise from Switched Mode Power Supplies, PLT and Plasma TVs. That's all part of the challenge. I tend to use a 350/400 Hz filter on CW so it helps if you net accurately.

Assuming you are within my passband, I have a widget using Spectrum Lab to set my RIT exactly so that I can use the Audio Peak Filter on my K3. Every bit helps.

My Wellbrook Magnetic Loop also helps when used with the second Rx on the K3 for diversity reception on all bands.

Equipment:
