QRP / Re: Sporadic Es on 6 metres has started

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.
