I just joined QRP-L a couple days ago.  Got the approval within a few hours.   Someone must be running it now.

Look at www.k7qo.com and the WAS and DXCC maps.  Worked Russia,
Germany, Italy, Japan, Mexico and Australia this week with 4W
using the KitsAndParts 5W-17.  Running 4W with 14V on the power supply.
Rotatable Dipole at 7 meters. 

 I'm on both mornings and later from Phoenix(Sun City) in the
afternoon when the band is in good shape.  SF=75 gives good results.
Spot me on the Reverse Beacon Network.

Hello Chas 
I thought I caught a whisper of your call but that’s all I heard!

Last nights signals were strange.
Not much noise but terrible QSB.

I went out this morning and checked to see if I had a antenna leg on the ground!!

Hope next week will be better.

Chas, N2SH was calling on 80m at the end of the net.  I heard him quite well in Louisburg, but obviously Lebo was something of a dead zone for him.  Along the same lines, I could barely hear some of the checkins from my QTH.

heard on 17 meters

Paul Goemans
 

Hello gang,
  I just heard the legendary Chuck Adams K7QO work 4A50CRH on 17 meter CW. I assume he was QRP! FYI Chuck originated the long-running QRP-L email list reflector that I joined in 1994. A great incubator of earlier QRP design, clubs and on-air events. That list continues today under different sponsorship. Is anyone here on that list? It seems to be rudderless as I have tried to rejoin several times over the past few years and get no response from the moderator.

Johnny, Thanks for trying to pull me out of the noise on 80m. I was running mobile in Clinton,OK (90 mi west of OKC on I-40 using an FT-817ND at 5 watts. Surprised you even heard me. :-)
40M net was not heard at all however, Chas NK8O and I had a good Q on 7122. 579/579.

Johnny,

Delta took out my 80 Meter inverted vee and twisted the 40 Meter loaded dipole around a bit on the mast with the tribander.
I'm still not really able to climb much yet, so I used a 30 ft Jacktite pole to push a fishing line through the tower.
Then pulled a rope & pully up 30 feet and used that to pull up a 80/40/30 double dipole that is part of my go-kit.
That's the antenna I was using tonight and was getting concerned when I was not hearing the net on 40 Meters but you and Bert were very strong on 80 tonight.
I think I also heard N4KV.
The rig tonight was a MTR4B running about 3 watts to the temporary antenna.

Johnny, I was excited to check in the net tonight on 40 m. I was using my HB1B 5 watt QRP with an inverted V antenna up about 18 feet. You sounded very good here in Western Colorado. It has been maybe several years since I checked in but I am a member of the club. Thanks for slowing down so I could copy.

I stayed with it searching from 7119 to 7123 for the full half hour, almost like my antenna was disconnected.  About a 1/2 hour before the Net W1AW started to fade..... that’s when I knew it probably wasn’t going to be a good night.

80m was just about the same.

Too bad, I need a “P” for my first Word Challenge word for this month’s NAQCC Alphabet Challenge.

See ya next week.
