Vacation Pics

A couple of weeks ago, I spent a week in a cabin on Elk Lake, MI. Over 25 members of my family congregated for this annual event., including my three sisters, a passel of nieces and nephews, their spouses, and kids. It’s a beautiful spot, and we have a great deal of fun.

As I have for the the past four or five years, I bring my KX-1 and attempt to make contacts. This year, the conditions were very good, and I had some nice, long QSOs with my little three-watter. I even managed a contact with HA8RM on 40m.

I operate from the screened-in porch of the cottage I stay in. Below, is me at the key.

Just to give you some idea of how nice this place is, here’s a shot overlooking the lake at sunrise:

  1. Looks like a great place. Two questions:
    1. What is that headset you’re using?
    2. What kind of antenna?

      1. I’m using the ear buds from my iPod Touch. They’re the loudest ear buds I’ve ever used.

      2. A 66-ft. doublet fed with twisted pair wire. The tuner in the KX-1 tunes it right up.
