Congrats Tim. Last night I finally got output from my HW8 on 40 meters.
Heard IK2BGD and gave him a call -SHAZAM- he returned a 559 to my
1.5 watts on the GAP vertical. He was solid 579 at 100 watts. Let's see-
according to my World Atlas that's a distance of 6500 miles at 1.5 watts
is 4333 miles per watt. By jove I believe I made it.
As it has been said before- Aint this QRP fun? Now to get rid on the
SW broadcast station interference on 40, which is there no mater what
dial is on, and the low frequency audio growl and the HW8 is ready for
fox hunting in 2001.
