    I just checked in to the noon time net and it is QRP day. It was very interesting I’ve not been in a QRP pileup before. Very strange because it was harder for me to be heard then it normally is in among the QRO guys.

    But I heard many many stations at QRP even one CW station at 100mw. Pretty fun, many are checking in now in CW.

    I find that qrp ssb is alive and well on 40 meters. I operate on that band mostly and hear lots of qrp stations. 60 meters is also a good bet for qrp ops.

    Normally that net is a QRO, but today it was specifically QRP day. They were asking all stations to check in using QRP power levels and announce their power level when they checked in. It was the most QRP operators in one place I had ever heard. In the early check hour they had over 200 operators check in using QRP. When someone checked in using QRO power levels they asked them to turn down to QRP levels. It was fun to hear the the difference as they turned the power down. It was also fun to hear operators comply and choose to switch to CW and check into the SSB net in CW. Most stayed in SSB.

    It was a fun QRP event....

    I checked in with 250 mW and my quarter wave vertical. Got in on the first call. Great farewell to the old original FT-817, replaced with an IC-705 today.
