The team getting set to activate Zambia tomorrow (9J2T) is taking along a KX3 and may be the first “major” DXpedition to do so.
It opens up a new challenge to DXers around the world as many DXers might see more fulfillment (or receiver bragging rights) in working the 10-watt station.
Given the choice of two stations on the air at the same time, I’ll definitely go after the KX3 first if I know which one it is.
It would be fun if the idea caught on of taking along a QRP rig on major DXpeditions.
An interesting set-up in the QRO category as well – combined KPA500 amps. I’ve heard of this being done and it offers a way to use multiple amps to produce higher (albeit expensive) power. Acom makes a combiner that has inputs for up to four separate amps.
The team will be there for a bit over two weeks.
