Turkey, wine and Ultimate 3S

Over christmas I decided it was about time I got on with the Ultimate 3S project from QRP Labs. Inspired by George M1 GEO and Dave G7UVW QRSS on 10 MHz i decided to heat up the soldering iron and follow the instructions.

Remembering the old adage “Bigger the blob, better the job”

Here you will find the story of the project.


Update 17/1

The TXM has continued to work flawlessly without issue. Ive move the antenna over to a dedicated 1/4 ground mounted roach pole with 4 radials. The power has been checked again and its 250 mW, the best spot I have is from 6500 KM away into Asiatic Russia to the East, and West around the same distance into the USA.


About M0TAZ

Dave enjoys all aspects of the hobby from contesting in a wet cold field (OK enjoys is a bit strong) to building beams and working big DX. Portable VHF and HF can provide lots of opportunity to try new things, test out antenna and enjoy a field day based curry.
