MiQP from Ohio

Sarah, Evan, and I had the opportunity to go to her parents’ place for the Easter holiday weekend. Since the trip coincided with the Michigan QSO Party, I decided this might be a good test of the portability of the K2. Unfortunately, I was unable to operate much longer than a half hour but I had some fun on 40 meters and tried out N3WG’s (Pignology) HamLog for logging. Neat stuff.

    Ethan it’s very nice to see the K2 up and running and netting you some results.

  • k8gu:

    Thanks, Mike! I’m enjoying it.

  • Dave K1THP:

    Nice setup! I have been blessed with a nice collection of rigs but my over all favorite is still my K2. Elecraft really hit it out of the park when they came up with a design that the average ham could successfuly build and use it to compete with the high end rigs. Enjoy yours!

  • k8gu:

    Thanks, Dave. Agreed! Like you, I’ve owned/operated some great radios over the years (including the K3 which got me in the door with Elecraft after years of Kenwood TS-930 ownership) but the K2 is something special.
