Re: KPA 1500 Minimum Ambient Room Temperature
(Small rabbit trail)
And a GREAT showing that trip made! Thanks for
the many contacts (21 confirmed), the treats were on 160M (500
watts, inverted L) and the shocker was on 60M (100 watts into a
rotating dipole, WOW!), so shocking I tried it again
successfully a couple nights later.
Elecraft to Elecraft, it was almost easy; you
clearly heard VERY VERY well there.
Thank you! WELL done!
Later this week, I'll finish moving pieces into
the new shack and KPA1500 s/n 012X will finally be heard on the
air (two years after arrival). Then I can pay attention to fan
noise and temps and join in those conversations with my data.

Thanks to Elecraft's generosity, we had a KPA-1500 on the recently completed VP8PJ South Orkney DXpedition. The temperature in the operating tent was usually in the low to mid 30s(f) (0c to +3c) all the time.
