Equipment: KX3, PAR end fed dipole, and J38 with homebrew leg strap.
Operated from Barnsaple, Devon and near Arundel, West Sussex.
Not many contacts but I learned a lot about getting equipment through airport security and about operating in less than ideal conditions.
Antenna strung as outdoor sloper in Devon and in hotel room in West Sussex.
