So, I've had my first local contact with the KX3. I was having a hard time getting the Mic Gain and Compression set correctly. However it seems to be in the ballpark now.
My current issue is getting the TX EQ adjusted for my voice. Apparently I have some nasty lows in my voice that the radio is not liking.
In other news, I've ordered a nice antenna analyzer and a few other toys to make my portable setup shine.
I've also gotten a nice hand held GPS for Geocaching. Gotta get out there an work off this beer belly.
