Some Thoughts About the K1

Doing some last minute QSO with the K1 before I head back to CPH. It was a rather joyful weekend with good test conditions of the K1. When the K1 gets back to the lab I’ll have following points on my TODO list:

  • Re-adjust BFO offset, settle for 700 Hz if possible.
  • Check whether the filter settings influence the centre frequency and sensitivity. It seems to me that the signal strength decreases when I use the narrow filter settings.
  • Noise blanker.It doesn’t cut the electric fene clicks away and it even generates some boiling noise in the LOW setting.

Otherwise the variable filter width is really something! In general, the receiver simply rocks!
