On photo Jeff WC4E. The following contests will take place over this weekend, they could give you an opportunity to test out your antenna and also your CW skills. I used to turn the rig off when I heard a contest in full swing but then thought at least I can see what I can work and so now I put them to good use and have a bit of fun for a while. No need to work for hours, just work as many as you like and see what you can do. I like to start off calling a station with as low a power as I can and see how many calls it takes to get a reply. Surprisingly I get answers to micro watt power a lot more often than I would expect.
