Re: QRP newbie question.

I would start with 20 meters at that time of the day. But you have to be patient. You’re not going to spin the dial and find a bunch of QSO. If nothing at all is heard, move to 30, then 40 meters. There are times that 40 meters during the day is quite active and others where it is terrible. Unpredictable I think is a fitting description. This past weekend was really good for 20 meters, even though overall conditions were pretty marginal. If you are an SKCC member and interested in contacts, it is worthwhile to follow the SKCC Sked page. At least you know where to look, even if you can’t scare anything up. QRPspots is good too, but doesn’t get the level of activity that I’d like to see on it. I have to admit that I often forget to post when I go out for portable ops.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I am taking a “new” radio out to try in the field today in just a few minutes (1300 central time). I will post frequencies on QRP spots as I move around. Feel free to give me a call if you can hear me.
