The K3S must be working alright on 475kHz!

Having done the K3S upgrades for 475kHz see here it was time for DX.  I was duly rewarded with my First transatlantic WSPR decodes of the year using the K3S and the PA0RDT whip in the loft:-

Timestamp           Call MHz         SNR Drift Grid          Pwr  km

Not band with the takeoff in that direction!
