    This is a myth. I worked all 50 states in 11 hours during the last CW SS using only the IC706 at 80 watts to a wire antenna up 25 feet on 40 and 20 meters. You do not need a world-class contest station to do it. You do, however, need to know what you're doing.

    sorry i don't know how to morse code, i want to learn though.. so far i only know e, s, and o :) Yes I know you don't need a top notch station, my wire antenna is less then 25 feet though, im getting a vertical antenna for HF tomorrow or the following days :).. But a great station does makes contacts much easier then a simple station. 73s ke5rrh

    First off let me just say I am glad to hear that we have a new young ham in town and congrats on your general ticket. As a fellow young ham, (22) I sometimes feel as though there aren't very many young hams on the air but time keeps proving me wrong. I'm sure you already know this but there is a great community of hams in the SA area that are more than willing to help out a new ham, especially the young ones. If you would like to just play around on HF and not worry about WAS or DX tune us up on the 10 meter net on 28.345 at 4:30pm local time or the night owl net on 147.380 at 10:30pm local. The guys on these nets will be more than happy to help out in any way! I hope to hear you on the air soon I haven't heard your call yet but I will listen for it. Take care bud , 73's -Josh WA5CXY :D
