Hi Steve, I nearly ripped my rx apart when I heard a station working you,
and I could not hear you!! I ALWAYS copy you on the speaker, no matter
which aerial you are running.....normally. That is a very creditable list
of distances worked for 5 watts output. That should act as stimulator to
those who want to try the band. Also, it provides a very good bit of aerial
testing gear, because the secret is all in the aerial.
Thanks, Alan. Yes, the little TX is good for testing antennas -
as well as testing the patience of other operators!
Another operator to copy my low power signal this past weekend
was John G4CNN.
John did a great job of pulling in my QRP signal to give me my
furthest QRP QSO so far - at a distance of 122 km. I was running
5 watts RF to my 12 m vertical.
Some details of my QRP TX can be found at:
