PFR-3 Progress

Need to wind two roids and then start aligning the receiver portion of the rig. So far, the kit has been a dream to build. No surprises, easy to follow instructions and a great PCB to lay parts on. Really impressed with the kit’s PCB quality…some kits (actually many!) supply PCBs that are hard to work with, at least for an old fart like me.

Helped a friend put up a “Cobra” antenna today…a neat short dipole antenna for 40 thru 10 meters. Thinking of building one for myself. I have built and used the 160 thru 10 and 80 thru 10…but the 40 thru 10 meter version is only about 42 feet long and will be a neat antenna to use while camping (RVing). This one uses coax instead of ladder-line and that is something that is favorable in my book.

Rain heading this way so maybe tomorrow I will get some air time in.

72/73’s for now….Mikey
