The DXpedition to the Isle of Man - Day 3
Another nice day at Eary Cushlin, with the weather gradually improving and with all the kit now unpacked and most of the testing finished, only a few minor changes need to be made today in preparation for the IARU HF World Championship Contest tomorrow.
A few things were on the books for the day, the most important item was to move the spider beam to a new location outside the form of the house, this was mainly due to interference from the new generator that has been installed here for mains power.
So with all the available help, the antenna was lifted off its base and dragged to the new location, then a little testing on the bands to check all is well.
For me anyway this was a very interesting but tad short day, I now think that the Elecraft K3 is a very great radio, and one that I personally will one day look forward to building (hopefully)….
