I decided to try a little SSB with my 100 watts and Slinky. It's an ugly, ugly
story, about my head exploding and stuff, which I shall save for my memoir. 

It turned out that my 66-ft end-fed wire in a tree does not want to load up on
10 Meters above about 28.1. Who knew? It wasn't real happy above 21.1, either.
I suppose I should shorten it a foot or two. It has to come down soon anyway.
Its current location is the best I've had here. It's not really in a straight
line, it's UP-OVER-DOWN, an Inverted U. 

The seven 10 Meter Qs I made were with about 20 watts out and 20 back. 

Best DX was one JA on 20. Only one Africa: 6W1SJ. No VK, no ZL. 

The K3 is very slick for split operation. For all I know, other modern
transceivers are, too. With the K3 I figured out how to do split lickety-split,
so to speak. 

I may be on for CW WPX, may not. I got laid off in December so all bets are
