April until June 2015, was FR/F5PLC, some QSO with KX1 and same antenna.  QSL via home call.

At home, with TS-850 the power is generally 50 Watts, using 100 W for big pile-up. Sometimes using also KX1 or K2 with very low power 100mW or 8mW.

In holidays or in portable using the little K2 at 0,5 to 5 Watts with 1/4 wave vertical for 10m to 20m or short vertical for 30 and 40m on 6,5m fishing-rod. Using also the KX1 at 1,5 to 3W on 20, 30 or 40m with same antennas.
