Ham radio as I know it is out!

I decided to put my Elecraft K3, Elecraft P3  , K-pod and LP-Pan up for sale!! It may sound odd but I was very close to the K3 and it served me very well. The support at Elecraft is amazing along with many rig software updates. The gear was sold one piece at a time. First it was the LP Pan that was sold and soon after the Elecraft P3 was sold and then the K-pod was gone. Just today the Elecraft K3 was shipped out. What is left is a vacant spot on the left side of the radio desk.........hmmmm is it still called a radio desk with no radio??? Why this drastic move you ask.....well the solar cycle is at a low, I do have some real challenges in the condo with a compromised antenna and when I looked over at the roll top desk that used to hold the K3 I just was not moved to go and turn it on. I came to the conclusion I needed a new challenge, something to give my learning curve a challenge. So what am I off to next.........stay tuned to find out!

  2. Hello Mike, that's very drastic. Very curious what's up next. Will it be basics again? A tiny homebrew set like those from Ukraine or India? Tell us more, tell us more....73, Bas

    1. Good evening Bas, I have been giving this some thought for some time now and have in the past almost did it. This time I just got tired of coming back to the same place and going over the same decision. More will be coming but in time Bas and again Ham radio is out as I know it......:))

  4. Good evening SI, don’t get me wrong the K3 is by far an outstanding radio and for me to change direction is going to be a new adventure for me.
