Brazil with QRP

Saturday is always a busy day for me. Hardly any time for radio. But I tried JT9 on 10 meter; the first station I heard was PY5EJ. I called him with 5 watts and he replied to me. I was hard because I had a lot of QRM of strong European stations. I moved up a little higher, so we could finish the QSO.


  1. Hi Paul.
    Nice contact. 10 metres was alive today. Like u I don't have much radio time on a Saturday usually but tuning on 10FM today I heard a U.S repeater on 29620 at the yl's QTH with the little pro whip vertical at 60db over 9!

    1. Hi Kevin, the weekend is most of the time spend with social contacts. I should listen to FM more often on 10m or AM. I hope condx on 10 m hold on for a while. 73 Paul

  2. Good evening Paul, very nice contact I was planning on getting some radio time in but Julie and I were out and about. Maybe Sunday will lend me some radio time.

  3. Hello Paul, sometimes it's great to struggle for a QSO, because it brings a lovely story to remember. The QSO is good for 1000 MPW. hi Well done. 73, Bert

  4. Hi Paul, some great contacts with your digital modes operation. Keep up the good work. 73 Dick

  5. Hallo Paul, prachtige JT9 verbinding!
    Het gaat lekker daar. 73 Hans, PE1BVQ
