More QRP again

My daily routine, I start my day with CW on 14060 KHz. I listen for for activity. The last few days I worked OH9XX/P on 20m, I was using 5 watts. Yesterday UA2FAI, I was using 1 watt. Also worked RG3R with 1 watt but with JT9 on 10m. Of course all with the Yaesu FT817 and my end fed wire. Today we have nice spring weather. Sunny but a little cold about 1,5 C now at the moment. Yesterday also good results with WSPR into the USA with 500mW on 10m.

  1. Hi Paul. Happy to read that you are still getting your cw time on-the-air. I don't get on the air until late afternoon, usually. 73 Dick

  2. Hallo Paul, ik las eens terug in mijn blog rond deze maand vorig jaar. We hadden toen niet alleen winters weer maar ook bar slechte condities. Dat is nu wel anders. Gisteren had ik wat tijd voor de hobby en wat op zoek geweest naar nieuwe DXCC. Jammergenoeg weinig te werken, ZL7AAA gehoord op 15m met 57. Maar de pile-up was gewoon te groot. Soms moet je ook gewoon geluk hebben zoals jij laatst met Sri Lanka. 73, Bas

    1. Hallo Bas, we zijn eigenlijk al verwend dat SF bijna elke dag op 150 of hoger staat. Het werken van DX is bijna altijd een kwestie van geluk bij mij. Op het juiste moment op de juiste frequentie zijn. 73 Paul

  3. Paul,

    Is that your Kent twin paddle? I had one years ago that I bought at Dayton. I sold it several years ago and was sorry the minute after it was gone. It's a great paddle and I was silly for selling it. I guess we all do stupid things at times.

    1. Hi Larry, it's a nice key, but I grab the picture from the Internet. I just liked the picture and key. 73 Paul
