    I wanted to see if it's possible to activate a Parks on the Air park using just a wire connected directly to my radio. The Elecraft KX3's tuner is famous for being able to tame even the worst antennas - how it would fair with my long wire? What bands will it work on? Can I leave the 9:1 unun at home?

    I can't watch due to data issues but I bet it did. I want to try a wire and a counterpoise with the bnc/2-wire connector that came with my KX3. Normally use an emcommII end fed.

    Saving for later.

    I'll say it did work. My 40/20 KX1 worked OK with the recommended 28 feet and 16 for a c'poise.
