Equipment: Elecraft KX3 (maiden activation / Buddipole versatee vertical
The more I played around with my brand new (less than 48 hour old) Elecraft KX3, the more I knew I had to plan an activation for this weekend. This will mean I’ll probably miss the combined QRPTTF + SOTA event scheduled for Saturday, 28 April.
Centennial Cone is a two point SOTA summit and is located just slightly NW from Genesee Mountain (WØ/FR-194) that I activated just a few weeks ago. At the present time Centennial Cone has had no other activations. So this will be my second summit where I was the first to activate.
I’m going to setup and operate on 20m SSB. However, I may also attempt to operate PSK31 via my iPad and the PSKer iOS App.
Well I need to wrap this up as I need to double check my gear and get it all ready to go. I look forward to working you on my fourth SOTA activation.
