I was testing remote with recently acquired K3/Mini and Remoterig system, SO1R only. 1st time trying remote in contest from anywhere. Was operating from kitchen over house WiFi. Things were going quite OK until wife woke up and started streaming on her iPad. 10 mins to go I finally went to ask her if she could stop for 10 mins. She agreed. Had bit of delays and audio pops but there could be some things to optimize in the Remoterig configurations. Other than that it was pretty authentic, nearly like being at front of real radio. Many of the goofings were due to unfamiliar computer keypad I was using at control station and switching antennas couple times by virtual buttons on 2nd screen that was screenshared from station to control all accessories, rotors, amplifier etc. Mousing anything on that 2nd screen got your focus bit off the radio and logging program. Also, it was bit strange to operate without visual information of P3 panadapter that I have gotten so used to. All in all, it was pretty good. I only had one unpatient guy at the start telling me I was lid ! I will likely do another remote session from kitchen for 19 z and Larry N6NC will likely do 03 z session across the town to test how it works from there. If you got any comments how it sounded at your end and if there were any strange things going on with keying etc, please email me. Tnx for putting up with it and tnx for QSOs de Marko
