I used my KX3 for the first of the 2012 Summer 20 Meter Fox hunts tonight – and it was great!
Using the K2, you hit the “split” button and you tune each, VFO A and VFO B with the same main tuning knob. You have to switch back and forth between the two VFOs in order to tune each one.
Not so with the KX3! Hit “split” and tune VFO A with the main knob and tune VFO B with the smaller, side tuning knob. No need to keep switching between VFOs to tune each one! This made things so much easier.
I worked Paul K4FB pretty much right off the bat. Don NK6A in California was more of a challenge. He was weak, but was picking up in signal strength as the hunt progressed. Nabbed each pelt using the Butternut vertical.
This was a great way to start the Summer season. Hope it stays this good!
