The new KY6R Station
The new antenna – Diamond 80/40M Inverted Vee up 60′. The KY6R Magnetic Loop to the left – waiting for me to have the time to finish that project
The AB-577 stays (for now)
I’d be super surprised if the KY6R Magnetic Loop performs (nearly) as good as the Inverted Vee, but that’s not saying too much. Inverted Vee’s have not been my favorite antennas, but I finally did get all 12 sections of the AB-577 mast up yesterday – after taking down the UrbanBeam.
The K3 and UrbanBeam left the premises today – and so now I am truly a QRP CW guy, with no plans on ever getting back into higher power or other modes. My DXCC chase is also done – I’m very pleased that I did what I did – but time moves forward, and I have new interests.
At least I am keeping one pinkie toe in the Ham Radio Pool. I do admit – the Win4K3Suite and KX-3 are a super fun combo – in fact, I was pleased to be back with the “less is more” approach.
