A thanks to all the chasers whom called in. 14 VK op’s on 40M with just 3W using the KX3 internal batteries.
4 S2S contacts, sadly missed a couple.
Onto a mix of 20/15 metres with 7 DX stations. Ran 5W for the DX of external battery (the internals carked in the end).
Weather not the best with sweeping winds and couple of brief rain squalls.
Newnes Plateau is the haunt of trail bike riders and a few times when they roared past could hardly hear the sidetone of my keying let alone what was being sent.
Enjoyed all the contacts, Cheers, Nick
