    I've been running a ranger on 75m and there are some perks to low power. When the band changes and I start to fade away people are more inclined to cut the qso short. When I run 300 watts they keep talking while I struggle to hear them.

    Yep, the weaker they are, the longer they talk. Life's too short for pissweakers.

    On the plus side, only stronger signals will qso with you if you run lower power.
    When I run 300+ watts, I often have a very weak station call me.
    But most of the reports I get are good as far as signal strength goes.
    And I always keep the transmissions short when running low power, shorter transmissions are good .
