Twice, this has failed, including sending TO the qrp net...so. 1 more
try, and if it fails...this guy is gone.

OH my! 15ma for rx? oh! Thats a LOT different then! and 200-300ma TX
ah...then Norcal is in the 2 watt region...( I assumed maybe 4.5 watts)

Speaking of QRP..just 3 min ago, on 3699kc, I was hailed by a QRP out of
Florida...X ruff copy, and he was using a keyer and kept flubbing things
with it...but it looks like KC4GKY (somthing...maybe /AA or some such)
so got to this machine to do a call search on him...and here you were!

I'm in Connecticut, by the way.
