Put the 40M QCX on the air today to check it out in preparation for a camping trip. Yep, it still works. Had a nice rag chew with a Kansas station. I had drifted away from QRP due to enjoying CW rag chewing and a desire to make things easy for the other guy. It turns out that QRP can and does work just fine for rag chews, I needed to go a bit deeper into understanding propagation and antennas. I see QRP differently now. It is a great place to build skill.
