Echos on 15 meters

I wasn't QRP either this time. I'm field testing some new K3 and their high power antenna tuner firmware in the contest so I was actually running 600 watts at the time. Having fun playing with the big boys in this one. Right now taking a coffee break. Last QSO rate was 72/hr. That's actually a personal best for me. Propagation on all bands but 160 has been phenomenal. Been a long time since ALL bands were open for an entire contest weekend!

That is always cool! I remember the first time I experienced that I was loading up a linear on 15 to do some RTTY back in the day and was quite amazed. And of coarse it came back a few Hz down.

Never experienced that QRP though.

Prop is so long tonight on 15 that I can tap the key with a short dit and actually hear my echo coming back all the way around!  10 is still open a bit to the Far East as well!
