I have a dream: to use the radio at low power and still be able to reach targets prestigious.
ONLYCW - QRP
YES WE CAN!
Even in a period of “low propagation” may be waived linear amplifier . I have also given up to 100 watts! I am reborn and I enjoy the real charm of the Radio!
My rig: Icom IC 7600 - Elecraft KX3 (for mobile-portable activity) and old Yaesu FT 101 ZD.
All radios are set to the max power of 5 watts output
Home made aerials: Half-Sloper - multiband antenna 21 m. long and short vertical 3 m. long + coils for mobile
Easily contact each day many European countries . also some special prefix like EA8, CN8,SV5, SV9, TA, 4Z4, JY, 5Z, 6W, SU8JOTA,A4, EA9, 7Z, ZB, 7X, A6, 5H, CT9, OY, ZC4 ecc.
After 12 years in QRT I have taken the amateur radio January 3, 2011, QRP –CW.
These are some DX…
