My last 10 logged QSOs are below ... all of these current QSOs are QRP with an Elecraft KX3. 

On 03/10/2013 I put my first Elecraft QRP rig (Elecraft K1) on the air.  I upgraded to a Elecraft KX3 on 12/06/2014. All but a few of the QSOs in this log were made with either the Elecraft K1 or the KX3 using wire antennas or a mobile antenna.

If I'm operating from home, my antenna is a 88' long ladder line fed doublet up 50'.  That antenna is also commonly referred to as a 20 meter extended double zepp.  If I'm operating portable from my RV, the antenna is a usually a W3EDP style end fed 84' wire slung up in a tree. If no trees are around, the end fed wire runs to the top of the RV's 28' tall fiberglass flagpole and then down to the ground ... or sometimes I use a hamstick mounted atop the ladder on the back of the RV.  

If I'm operating portable, this log will not update until I get home and upload my log.

If you worked me while I was camping, then this is probably the station I was using in my 5th wheel RV ... 

Elecraft KX3 powered by a 9 Ah battery plus a Palm Mini Paddle and a W3EDP style Zepp antenna.

The Palm Mini Paddle is mounted for use as a straight key (SKCC) in this photo. I rotate it 90 degrees for iambic paddle operation.

This photo was taken on 12/24/2014 while camping near Kings Bay, Ga.

 

 

DXCC SATELLITE # 118 of 340 awarded - Molniya orbit satellite operation was my main radio interest from 1987-1995. I operated primarily on AO-10, AO-13 and AO-40 (P3D) ... modes B, J and S

I'm currently ranked #79 in satellite DXCC countries confirmed worldwide.

 

 

That's me on the cover in the blue shirt.  I was on a black sand beach in Hawaii operating Field Day in that photo ... running a homebrew 20 meter QRP rig.  

 

All of the contacts (zones/countries) on this map were made on HF with QRP and a wire antenna or mobile antenna.
