Guess it’s time to sell the K3. I will keep the KX-3, Adventurer paddle and Begali Sculpture Mono. Just a ladder line doublet up 50′ might be where the ball lands in my last year’s of Ham Radio. Or maybe just the magnetic loop antenna – if it works well enough.
Ham Radio ended for me after the VK0EK DXpedition. I’ve tried my best, but after this mag loop experiment, I think I’m done. I’ll keep one “pinky toe” in the hobby with the KX-3 and a solar charged battery.
