N4CO Lewis's shack
Fully loaded Elecraft K3, S/N 9010, one of last K3s produced before Dayton release of K3S. Would I have waited on the K3S had I known I don't know as the K3 is very mature and most new rigs have production changes along the way. At least with Elecraft they do address issues in a timely manner and provide updates or parts at little or no cost. Amplifier is Elecraft KPA500 running 500-600 watts into Elecraft KAT500 Antenna Tuner. Makes for a nice seamless station that?s for most part plug and play. Digital interface is microHAM DIGI KEYER II, logging software is DXLABS, WRITELOG and N1MM. I have not used new version of N1MM yet, but liked WRITELOG better than prior version of N1MM. Using three 24 inch ASUS monitors seems like I need lots of screen space.  Antenna farm is limited, as I don?t have lots of space and don't want guys around the yard. However, I have a 24 foot DX ENGINEERING Vert (50 radials), homebrew OCF Dipole as well as working on installing 40-50 feet of 25g. Whatever goes on tower will be at least 5 bands, perhaps a Hex Beam, once I work out details for mounting on a Hazer.
