    As I say on the air, "Kilo, KEEEEE LOOOOOO!" hahahaha! Its like even my threads are QRP :) Looks like theres a speech processor in my future too!

    I've been curious as to the state of the hobby, especially our own corner thereof, and what success people were seeing. It has led to a few tweaks on my station as well - live and learn!

    Many thanks to all who've responded, and if you're just now reading this please dont think you're too late to chime in!

    Well O.K. then!
    Rig- MFJ-9200
    Antenna- a portable home-made 4ft magnetic loop
    Mode- CW ( slow but steady... you can call me the Turtle!)
    Band- 40m (I've got the whole set of modules, but only use the 40m one right now)
    Favorite Hang-out- 7.030 to 7.040.... but I spend a LOT more time listening and practicing my code copying than I do talking.

    Over the last few years, my QRP station has gotten smaller, simpler, and more FUN.

    What I used for portable over the summer -

    Rig: MTR-4B Mountaintopper
    Antenna: W1SFR end-fed
    Mode: CW at 12 wpm
    Band: 80/40/20m
    Location: parks, back yard
    Success: Utah and Oregon from Washington State w/ 5 watts

    I finally got a permanent antenna up and I'm going to be able to operate indoors this winter. Also, I have a new KX3 to figure out. So, with a better rig and antenna, I may have more success to report by next spring...

    Just realised I posted 2 replies. That old brain doesn't remember things as well as it once did...
