Hi Glen, 30 meters is a great band, not sure how many qrp-l'ers you
will find, but do know that you will find a lot of QRP. Typically
input of about 5 watts. Do not hear a lot of cq qrp either, but
often the rig is homebrew running 5 to 10 watts. Band is different
sometimes just like 20 meters and at other times it is 40 meters. :-)

Being hr in the center of the USA I notice that skip sometimes is to
different headings, do not get CA and VT at the same time. Look from
10.105 up to 10.125 and work some of the weak ones, you will be surprised
at how many turn out to be running low power. de stan ak0b
