    Yes, I typo'd the call sign here. I have it in my QRZ logbook as ZL1BYZ (not ZL1ZYB). Good catch!

    I am thinking things are so crummy that it's a good day to do something crazy like call CQ with 100 milliwatts until I get an answer. The question will be, will it take 5 minutes or 5 hours? Or will I just give up after half an hour, lol? Guess I'll find out! 73

    Thank you!
    No luck so far, though!

    Well sure, you silly! You're using an Isotron 160 meter antenna up 6 feet, with a 3:1 SWR, in the middle of the day!! :D:D

    LOL, well, whatever I'm using, it isn't enough. Think I'll give up for today and go back to normal QRP levels!

    It was a great exercise. Now you'll be thinking of 5 Watts as powerful. :)

    Often, after running my HW-9 or KX1 I'll fire up the Century 21 with it's 25 watts of fury and feel like I'm running a kilowatt!! :)
