Hi! Lewis,

Welcome back to this wonderful hobby.-

How about your antenna ? Did you find a good solution ?
I have some good ideas about that, as I like very much to experiment with stealth antennas,

Please let me know, how it is going on.-

Hi all, Lewis here (VE3QJ) from Pembroke Ontario. Just trying to get back into hf under strict antenna rules.
I have been a ham since 2001. I have enjoyed vhf/uhf comms and once the warm weather is back, i will be out trying to suspend a length of wire connected to a 9:1 unun.
I just purchased an sdr qrp hf rig and i will using it either on the patio or the mobile.
Cheers. :D

It makes me very happy noticing that this forum is acquiring new life.
Welcome to all the new members and returning ones.
I’m an only CW operator, 90% QRP.  The other 10% percent of the times, I cracnck it to 75 watts for specific missions.
My main rig is a TenTec Eagle, but I take my HW-9 for field ops and my Mountaintopper 4 for POTA activations.
I have a small number of keys, but mostly use a Vibroplex Brass Racer, a Speed X bug or a regular non-descript straight key.
73 to all.

Don't forget the Elecraft K2(10W) transceiver. That is my principal rig these days. Except when I run  the IC-7200 at 5 watts. I had a TS-120V and 130V ten-watter radios. Lovely rigs now gone.

30 meters was my favorite band from day-one. Had a nice antenna back then. Not now.

With over 40 years as an amateur, I believe that I may have, possibly, 3 or 4 hours with a mic in hand. Only to test the transceiver. So I guess I qualify as 100 percent cw.

Greetings from the Brittany coast. Still active though less time on-the-air these days. Very old QRP rigs have bit the dust over the years. Now down to a K2(10W). As I don't care for small transceivers, I use my IC-7200 at 5 to 10 watts. CW with old straight keys. Antenna EFHW Par. On 20 meters between 14.050 and 14,060 mHz. 72/73 de Dick F8WBD
