K3 144XVTR 60m wspr

PTT connected to KEY-OUT pin10  180R  protection. 13.3V to main single pin power (on board 220R are used to pass signals to the ACC pins as protection )  SMA  144 port Building this 144MHz XVTR  into the K3 project kept me in the warm shack. Since the nice summer type weather ended here last Friday the sky turned grey and we are back to cool windy rainy weather. Same time ES dx Disappeared I now strong believe the ES clouds are fed with sunny sommer weather gasses that rise up into the ionosphere... Some time ago I bought the "Ukrainian"   XVTR 144MHz  And now it works,  had  first contact's at 144.174  in FT8 I seached some victims for the first 144MHz contact,  the whole 144- 146 empty but still life ? or should I say robots active... on FT8 144.174 Meanwhile weather has changed again in to summer  and so  the propagation. Since the K3 144 transverter is running I had remarkable good results with it and the home brew 7ele + 5 ele 4M duoband Lots
