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.

Welcome Yianni! I hope to have a QSO with you. I have worked several SV stations recently and had a QRP contact with SV1YR/3 about four days ago.

I'm fairly new to cw but it's my go to mode besides the digital modes.  Digital doesn't excite me like cw does.  I honestly can't remember my last ssb contact.

My name is Erik. KG5WOY. SKCC#19163

It may sound funny but I've been a ham twice.  I got my Novice when I was 10 and upgraded to Technician when I was 16 but let my license expire in 1994 when I was in the Navy.  I got my license because my whole family (father, mother, and sister) were hams and being the youngest I didn't want to be left out.  Fast forward to 2017 and I'm considering getting into citizen's band radio and decided I might as well get my license again.  I was amazed at all that had changed in the rules and the hobby in general.

I studied for the Technician and General and passed both in one shot.  Ended up getting my Extra a year later.  If you're not an Extra allow me to encourage you to study and get it.  You really learn alot about the hobby.

From 2017 until recently I have been 100w only but I fell in love with QRP when a buddy showed me his FT-817 which I bought from him shortly after.  Now I'm exclusively QRP.  I just love the challenge of it.  My set up is the 817 with an End Fed Half Wave thrown into a tree, though I'm seriously considering going vertical after I got my throw weight stuck in a tree, well, actually two of them. Happened twice in one day.

Thanks for letting me in and I hope to meet you on the air.

QRP / Great 2x QRP with IS0ESG on 17m

I was listening on 17m on what seemed like an almost dead band when I heard a CQ from IS0ESG/QRP. There were next to no other signals but when I turned my antenna in his direction he was 579 to 539 with QSB. I gave him a call and received a 599 plus report which wasn't really surprising as I was running 200 Watts so I reduced power to just 5 Watts and received 559.
I've been working QRO recently (200 W), but that QRP contact gave me a better thrill than any QRO contacts. I think I need to get my KX3 back into service and start playing serious QRP again!!
