YES! YES! YES! I gave you 229-339 on peaks, but your numbers are more
accurate. I was at 2 watts into the added fan for 20m on the attic dipole!
QSB was long and slow, but I got your call the second try. I was working
Stan's QRO 599+ with my phones behind my ears and gain all the way down, so I
really had to adjust to your sig! (Dave, this rig is absolutely amazing --
even with my construction!) I got home too late to catch John N0JH/7 in WY,
but I had just worked Doc, K0EVZ down on the FISTS freq. I think I solved
my NC20 chirp with a husky power cord and 2.5m connector. THANKS AGAIN DEAN,
and I've added my HI QRP number to my QSL pedigree.

HIQRP# 83 QRP-L# 704 NorCal# 1998 FISTS# 5096 Zombie# 510 ARCI # 9843
(That's a lot of $15.00 deadlines to miss -- thanks Doug!)
