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 (base) - Elecraft KX3 - Kenwood TS480SAT (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 22 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…
