Re: Big Brutus draws near... Roll call?

Unless the weather is totally crappy that weekend, I plan on being there. I'll most likely arrive Saturday morning around 9 or so and will either sleep in my SUV or a hotel in Pittsburg.
If I make it, I will have some really good 12 volt, 9 amp hour, tab terminal sealed lead acid batteries with me. These will be offered for $10 each or 2 for $15 and all will be tested and fully charged.
I'm bringing my Elecraft KX3, PX3 and the KXPA100 amp along. Yeah, yeah, this is a QRP outing but I'm also going to be running some antenna tests on a rapidly deployable portable/emergency 31' extendable, helically wound fiberglass pole/antenna. Might need the 100 watt power level to keep some skeds and for 80/160 meter early morning tests.
The station will be available for anyone that doesn't own a KX3 or has never had the chance to operate one. Not trying to sell them, just give people a chance to play with a really nice rig.
