The day before SalmonCon 2011 nine ham radio OPs as Team-K7S climbed Mt Little Si near North Bend, WA. Little Si is a SOTA summit - # W7/KG-134. Part of the Elecraft KX3 design team Lyle/KK7P and Rich/AC7MA brought along their engineering prototype of the KX3. We eagerly jumped at the opportunity to operate this coveted trail-friendly radio for this was the first time the ham public had access to a working KX3 prototype! For 3-hrs we tried hard to break Lyle's engineering prototype SN001 but we failed! However we all had smiles on our faces as we returned to base camp that afternoon just knowing we touched a KX3.

SalmonCon is a QRP focused conference which mostly draws NW ham radio QRP affecionados. Resulting in several days of presentations, good food and fellowship amongst friends while camping at Valley Camp - North Bend, WA

@BryGT500 Contact Chris or JD and ask them about their Adjustable Shockcord Whips! antenna used was a shockcord mast, versatee, mini-coil, and the adjustable shockcord whip. Yes, indeed can't wait! ...the KX3 will ROCK the Goat's world too!

Fantastic video going to get the KX3. Would like to get the same Buddipole set up as used in the video. Little SI for Summits - SOTA could you send or post a parts list on the buddipole setup. 73. North Bend Wa.

Can you post (or PM me) with the Buddipole components you use? I want to replicate the setup and can't quite figure out what parts you're using. 
History in the making. I'm gonna own it and I can't wait. 73!
