I set the KX1 up at the school and used a compromise antenna...a Cabelas pole stuck into a picnic table for the 28' wire, up about 5' off the ground, and a 16' wire paired with it for 5ft and then striaght down, held up by a coat hook outside a school room door. I heard WQ5P/M Harold in Plainview, TX call CQ loudly on 14.048 at 0619z. There was some QSB but I got a 449 at the beginning of the QSO.

I set up at the school around 0200z and heard K4TWJ on 30m in QSO with a QRP 5 station running a KX1. After they signed I gave Dave a call but he didn't hear me. Antenna was a 24' wire in a tree.

I talked to Glenn WB6W and Bill K6ACJ on 75M CW with my new Gamma Research Power Supply running the HFpacker amp. I was able to send "73 de wa5znu . ." with the power off, just running off the 5F of capacitors!
