K3Y - 2012

Postby PA1FOX » Fri Nov 25, 2011 10:54 am

Hi Fellas,

Since I've only joined SKCC this august, I am not familiar with the SKCC K3Y event. I''ve read the informational pages behind the link at the SKCCGROUP.COM website, but they are all related to the 2011 event and mostly USA related.

The reason I'm writing this, is Bert F6HKA has sent an email around inviting members to take part as the Special K3Y stations. Since I'm just a beginner I will not, but the event as such as attracted my attention.

I was wondering if there is more to know for the event, or will it come automatically with an update of the regular K3Y page on the main website?

73,
Alex

Hi Doug,

40m has always been a very crowded band to me. I've never done much HF anyhow, but since I started to relearn CW recently the HF bands come far more into picture than the VHF bands.

Last year, at first, most contacts were on 80 meters. I really had troubles with nerves and when abbreviations in contacts were used, I was glad to at least work locals in my own language. Last year may, someone showed me the sideswiper. I've built the one on the photo to the left and started using it straight away. Gradually the nerves have ceased and I've switched to DX. It has just been about two weeks ago since I made my first contact on 40 across the pond. It is since the last month that I can say the nerves are really gone.

This is my first K3Y event. Last year January I was really frightened to go on air (although I got my CW included license in 1987 with exam on 12wpm). All was due to some very bad experiences on 30 meters back then.

Currently I am trying to reach the C, but it will not come easy. In the middle of US, where you are, 40m opens up at a time which is very late for me here. I do have work and family life... :)

But then, you never know, I'll keep an eye open for you Doug.

73, Alex

Just noticed the mis-spelling of your name. Sri bout that.

Changed it in previous posts.

No worries Alex. It's very common. I've even done it myself!
