N7BPT says: "My 5 year old daughter JJ loves the KX1. It's just the right size, and though she doesn't have much interest in SW broadcasts and ham band rag chewing, she enjoys listening to the "rocket ships" and "fairy radio stations" (which she is happy to translate into English for me.)"

"I may have to get her a KX1 of her own so I can have mine back! "

Hello Everyone,

Excellent night last night I worked 63 stations in 2 hours. The K2 does a great job, looking forward to the KPA-500. I hope that I'm getting more experience working that side of a pile-up.

I'll work some CW this evening between 0500z and 0600z. Listen at 14040 kHz.

Propagation has been good, Hope to hear you tonight.
