QRP / Re: Sporadic Es on 6 metres has started
« Last post by GM0LVI on May 29, 2021, 18:02:09 UTC »
I usual operate from about 50.086 to 50.100. Multi-hop DX tends to operate around 50.100.
If you've not already discovered it there's a very useful web resource for seeing what's happening at -

Yes, has to be CW as low signals are very much easier to copy and I jsut can't be bothered with FT8 as it doesn't have the human touch. :-)
A fellow ham here in town has made 100+ contacts in ft8, and at the same time I try the band calling CQ and listen
 in CW but no luck.
In which frequencies do you operate?

Telegraphy / Re: how many cw ops?

Welcome all to this ancient forum and thank you for giving it life back.
I also do only CW QRP.  Yes, I own a microphone but would have a tough time finding it somewhere in the garage.
My station runs on a 100 watt solar panel with a Renogy controller into a 20 ah battery.  I'm completely independent of the A/C power.
My main rig is a TenTec Eagle that I keep at 5 watts.  My key is a Vibroplex Racer bug and the antenna is a Butternut HF6V.
I enjoy doing Parks on the Air (POTA), and for that I use a Mountain Topper MTR-5b to a home brew portable vertical (aluminum tent poles + Wolf River coil + extendable 102" whip antenna).

I'm a member of the NAQCC, which is dedicated to QRP activities, and to the CWOPS which is dedicated to CW.

73 to y'all.

Hi! all,

Believe it or not, , I've been all QRP/CW since I got my ticket 58 years ago.

I don't know if I'm the oldest woodpecker... Hi! Hi!  ;D

So much fun and relaxation!!

I use the Palm Mini Paddle, or the vibrokeyer (single leverĀ») from Vibroplex, + a bencher paddle and an old  marine straight key (J.W.BUNNELL dating back from the WWII era.

I can't wait for the new cycle 25, it is really low to come alive...

Best to all, stay safe
See you on the bands.
