I love CW. I enjoy both International Morsecode and Japanese Morsecode. As a non-native English speaker, CW chat by English language is a big challenge for me. But QRQ chat by English sounds very cool!
My K3 is very poor
I made apple to apple comparison between K3, FT2000 and K1. The band is 40m and the time is eveing in Tokyo Japan. Above shot is a band scope snap on 40m band when I made the test. The biggest peak around 7330KHz is a Broadcast whose signal strength is +60dB over S9 on my FT2K s-meter.
And here is the comparison movie, 1st one is K3 vs K1, and the second one is K3 vs FT2K vs K1.
K3 is obviously very noisy and poor. FT2000 is much better than K3 and K1 is the best in three radio. 200-dollar raido beats 4000-dollar raido! Is this only on my K3?
