Re: Slight Frequency Shift When Keying
Roy, K6XK, told me the same thing about my keying. It appears to happen when I leave the RS 30m turned on overnight and doesn't happen when I turn the PS off before going to bed.
I turn the K3 off every night before I QRT for the day. However during the time of the year when thunderstorm activity is low, I was leaving the supply run all night long. When I started doing this is when Roy started telling me about the slight frequency shift. As the thunderstorm activity began to rise I started turning off the PS before retiring for bed, the frequency shift problem went away.
I'm wondering if something is heating up in the K3 when the power supply is left turned on all night long.
I have not discussed this problem with Elecraft.
