I receive my Deluxe Buddipole kit two days ago, and today was my first chance to set it up and play around a bit. I've already ordered a few more optional parts for it so that I can experiment around with 6m and 10m two and three element beams.

All I got a chance to check out this afternoon was 20m. I did hear a few folks on, but propagation was really bad today on 20m. At least I know that my KX3 works now!

I am impressed with the number of permutations possible with this clever bit of engineering. So far I've tried a horizontal dipole and vertical "L" configuration. I'm looking forward to some warmer weather so I can spend some time in the park DX'ing.
