New shack setup with K9AY Listening Antenna

The K9AY proved to be helpful in helping me bag my last few DX especially on 80m as I was able to bag 5R8M Madagascar in the log.

The box on the right is an RTR1A transmit and receive relay switch between TX and RX.  The relay shuts off the RF path into the receiver on TX.  The right switch can be on the TX antenna, the RX antenna on RX.  It also allows momentary monitoring of the TX antenna.  The center box is the K9AY control console.  The RX antenna is connected to both the K2 and the KX3.
