30m QRP

30 meters is by far my favorite band for QRP and QRO.

Remember, "...the least amount of power to maintain
contact..." means QRO might be necessary.

Regardless of the time of day, I start on 30 to see
what the band is like. I've had strong QSO's well
into the local late night. I can also find code speeds
of every denomination on 30m.

If 30m is dead then I switch to good ole 40m. If it's
hopping there but high in QRN (natural noise), I concede
to 80m where it's always open but usually is little less
noisy.

How about another WARC band between 40 and 80? 60 meters
with the restrictions of 30. It might be a bit QRNy but
no SSB or Digital would make it a pleasure to inhabit. ;^)
