I found a very nice, light but rugged pouch on Amazon that has some nice
features, including spots for a couple of Packtenna minis and accessories.
It?s not overly padded but rather intended to slip into your main rucksack
and not dig into you like a pelican.

I've seen a few neat ideas on how to carry/use a KX2 in the field.

I just picked up a very nice KX2 (Thanks WB5XX) that I plan on using for
SOTA op's.  It came with the SideKX end panels and the protective plastic
cover.

I was on a SOTA trip with WG0AT last September and he had a very nice tin
that the KX2 fit in.  It wasn't much bigger than the KX2. I've also run
across the nice pelican case style setups.  While the pelican case will
definitely protect the KX2 it seems like a bulky solution while hiking.

When I activated a couple SOTA"s last summer I took my KX3 with the side
panels/cover.  I just wrapped it with a towel and stuck it in my back pack.
While it worked I didn't think it was the best solution.

What are others doing?

?Selectivity????

Do you mean DSP filter width?

Narrow width does decrease the background noise.

As a general practice, most do not recommend using ALC from the amp to the
transceiver.??? ALC is not a "compression" mode and should not be used as
such.?? The ALC performance in modern transceivers will usually be superior
in performance to the voltage derived in the amp and then processed by the
transceiver to control drive power.

The amp should have adequate safeguards designed in to prevent overdrive and
alert the operator of such occurrence.

This list wasn't the only one impacted. I'm the lit admin for the PVRC
reflector. We had the sdame issues: 

 

Here's the explanation from KA9FOX of QSL.NET: 

 

The QSL.net box (which hosts the mailman.qth.net mailing lists) had some
file system corruption that wasn't immediately apparent.  This was causing
some queue issues.  Now all resolved, but a bunch of randomly held messages
over the last week did get let loose.

Are you using or boosting the receive EQ in CW mode??? I believe at lower BW
settings the EQ will be negated thus you are losing the effects of the
applied boost.?? As an operating practice, little to no RX EQ should be used
for CW mode as EQ typically creates phase effects impacting harmonic content
of the audio signal.??? It is always much better to "attenuate" as opposed
to "boost".

David,

Are you certain the Kenwood mic is electret?  Most are dynamic.  Make 
certain the mic plug is wired for standard Kenwood pinout for HF mics, 
Some made for VHF rigs may be different.

My Invoice is dated 8/29/2017 for the full amount.? I am sure we are all 
curious what the invoice date is of those being shipped with admittedly 
the warning that is not an absolute but it would give us that ordered 
some clues.

Thanks!

Ordered my KPA-1500 online during the evening of 8/24.within a couple of
minutes of receiving the Elecraft email allowing "pre-sale" to those who
signed up on the list.  Paid in full then.  No call yet.but I'm very hopeful
it may still come this week.

Elecraft and Kenwood reverse the pin used for +8V that powers
the DTMF encoder.  You will need to move the wire on pin 5 of
the Kenwood Foster plug to pin 6 to get the +8V from K3/K3s.

The same is true if you want to use a Kenwood desk mic with
built-in preamp or active equalizer (e.g., MC-60A, MC-80, MC-85,
etc.) with the preamp or eq.

There have been a few posts on this subject, but none had answers.

 

Both my main and sub receiver are on the same antenna.

The audio volume from the sub is much lower.

The AF for the main is?? let?s say at 9 o?clock?.. to get equal volume level
from the sum? Sub AF has to be at 3-4 o?clock.

RF on both are the same.

Any suggestions? Is this normal?

PM Mail .. that brought back memories.? My OS/2 box was my main computer 
until it got to the point where I had no choice to move to Win7, because 
Win7 was as stable as OS/2 - eComStation.?? However, by that time I had 
moved from PM Mail (which was no longer being supported) to Thunderbird, 
haven't looked back.

I think the reason old posts are are showing up was because for about a 
4 or 5 day period, I didn't get a single thing from the list.?? I 
suspect that there was either a server issue, or something else that 
kept the email from being sent.

Same matched filters? New or always been that way? Checked internal cables,
fitment? Is it possible to adjust eq separate for each receiver?

I keep my KX2 in a Pelican 1300 case.  It is a small but deep case?with
enough depth to fit a 7 AHr 4-cell LiFePO4 battery and some kit in a bottom
layer with the KX2 and more stuff on top.  I plan to add a SideCarPlus
memory keyer to that top layer.  This is a waterproof go station for bike
trailer or car camping and a bit heavy for backpacking

You may want to check that NR is the same (on or off) for both 
receivers.  In my experience you may have NR off for the main and NR on 
for the sub.  That will give you a "lower volume" for the sub.  Also, 
check the attenuater is the same for both receivers too.
