I received the Begali Adventure paddle. What a work of art. This paddle is another example of the precision workmanship found in Begali keys. I installed the key on my KX3 (you must plug the key into the key port on the side of the radio) and it is pure joy to operate. So a KX3, with a Begali key, this isn't your your Dad's QRP. Most luxurious.
The key also had available hardware that will allow this key to be used with the KX1 and FT-817.

This week I also received from TJ, W0EA, my Mountain Top'er Rig, MTR, a KD1JV designed 2 band QRP radio. This is a SMD kit that I asked TJ to build for me since, at the time, I didn't really have any experience soldering SMD components. My MTR is set up for 40m/20m operation, CW only. It is very light and is well designed. I made my first QSO with W7WHO shortly after taking it out of the box. I look forward to using it on SOTA activations.

Oh the temptations of QRP gear. Right now I'm a happy camper.
