I built a 20M SSB transceiver that runs about 1 watt out. As you you know I'm
99% building, 1% operating, but I have great success with this unit. I just
find a strong signal and call the station when they finish the QSO. Get about
90% hit ratio using this method. Answering CQ's with 1 watt on 20M got me a
50% hit rate. Calling CQ was a waste of time. Signal reports tended to be S7
to S9 and antenna is a 68' end fed wire (w/i 200' of ocean). Found the 20M
SSB QRP frequency not active with QRP ops.
