Elecraft KX3: when working QRP or portable

Ten-Tec Titan 425 with 2 x 3CX800A7, provides more than 1.5 kW.
I keep it just for the fun of having such an awesome PA.

CW Skimmer/ WSPR-beacon based on a Red Pitaya. It feeds spots into the Reverse Beacon Network and into WSPRnet respectively.

End- fed half wave- dipole for 7MHz, 10MHz and 14MHz. The loop at the far end is part of an artwork of my neighbour Friedrich who kindly offered his balcony as an anchor point for my wire. The matching network is located in the little grey box at the left side.
