APF made all the difference
in the 20 Meter Fox hunt tonight.
I worked Dave AB9CA first. His signal strength was a bit different tonight as he is not home in Alabama, but is vacationing in Wisconsin. Completing Fox duty while on vacation – now THAT’S dedication!
Paul AA4XX was another matter. I could barely hear him when I did finally find him. The K3’s APF (Audio Peak Filter) made all the difference in the world. At ESP levels when I first heard him, turning on the APF feature insured that when I finally worked him, I was able to hear him answer me back! It took a barely audible signal and boosted it to a 449 to my poor old ears.
Thanks Elecraft, for a real neat (and usable) feature!
