This station Class 1E, at home, on battery, using an ARK 4 and a
folded dipole at 40 ft., worked 90 stations on 40M CW at 4 watts out.
Location: 84.00 W, 35.48 N, near Knoxville Tn.
Inet QRP'ers worked: None
Comments: Worked about 12 hours out of the 24, started duping stations
toward the close. More difficult to make contacts than
a QRP QSO party. Need a better QRP strategy. Tried "channel
master", "in your face", and "hit and run". Nothing works well.
About two contacts per frequency change. Need a preprint of
all of the ARRL Section ID's in the cockpit next time.
Propagation seemed normal. Some QRN due to thunderstorms late
Sunday. 40 meters was enough for me. Really didn't miss 20
meters like I thought I would. No 6's or 7's worked. 7ah
gel cell down to about 11.7 volts at close.
