Two 2xK3 contacts in PSK31

Conditoins remain excellent on the 10m band. I made several contacts and even had Stateside DX stations reply to my CQs. Two of my contacts were with Elecraft K3 users – don’t often hear K3s on digital though they are the perfect rig for it.

When I’m not actively working stations I like to look at the PSK Reporter reception reports map.  It’s more interesting than WSPR as the reports are of actual PSK31 signals. It’s a pity there isn’t a beacon mode because you have got to transmit or call CQ to see reports of your own signal. At least it is motivation to actually go on the air rather than just lurk!
