Running 5 Watts: G11 in ARRL Contest: SOAB QRP [part 2.]
On Monday morning, just before leaving for work, I've decided to check 15 one more time. Parked on 21.060 KHz called CQ once, got spotted straight away and then logged 90 QSOs in less then an hour! What a blast! At the moments I even had 3 or 4 callers - a mini pile-up! The highlight: being called by VA1CHP from NS and VY2OX from PEI! East Coast Canadians are hard to work even with HO let alone with QRP. A truly amazing experience. Total: 168 contacts in 5 hours, running just 5 Watts. The spectrum shot of 40m band an hour after the strom. Wow! Hardly any background noise!
