Hmmm, possibly. Same result in the end.
Interesting that most replies say yes but most pollsters say no.
What's going on??
I'm in a minority then. I'm okay with that.
Not sure whether this has been discussed, but should we have certain CoA freqs do you think?
Maybe say "20" somethings, so 7.020, 7.120,3.520, 10.120, 14.020, 14.320 and so on. Im working hard...
No one's upset!
I could open the Marathon to public discussion
Good idea if people have asked for it.
I still think my "Marathon" idea is a good challenge for the dedicated few!
No one is upset at all and no one means or takes offence. The gain sayers simply feel that to open this forums awards to non /p would dilute its purpose. That's all.
It's up to Matt in...
Im glad you have popped up and said that:it is my thinking exactly.
Oh I see Jon.
I'm afraid the answer is probably emphatically NO. This is a forum for portable ops. That's it's whole raison detre. I daresay that if you wished you'd get a heads up from /P ops...
I don't understand your post. There are many awards, that's the point. What do you want that we haven't got my old fruit?
Five votes !?!?!
Wow I thought we'd get more.
No one cares then?
I love the ebike mobile!!!
I keep meaning to fit a whip to my push bike but time..., ah time.
Anyway, I think you will find quite a QRP stance here but please don't let us intimidate you. We...
No, that's not portable at all. It's a very fixed station with a long but invisible connection wire.
I'm sorry we're popping our philosophy at you, each to his own I guess.
Ha ha. Good advice. Personally I can't fathom why anyone uses more than a few watts when portable either. Maybe 25 tops.
I use my self contained kx1 with just a few watts of cw and simple...
Well apparently some ops don't want to give their locations away in case of invaders. I know Matt spent a long time thinking about it so I'm not having a go at him. In fact out of respect for Matt...
Sorry Peter, I was thinking in terms of cw, my only mode like you. I think the Europeans are allowed (required?) To sign /QRP whereas we are technically prohibited from doing so. Not that it...
Matt, as you know I'm dead against the privacy settings; really spoilt it for me (I'm still out /p, just not going for awards any more). How about instead of a repeat setting you put an "opt-in"...
Peter, I think you are right. Some qro ops refuse to work QRP stations anyway. I'm not sure what adding power will do: you've already told them you are running 5w or less.
Personally I hate...
Just had this report from a happy, UK based, easy-up antenna customer..
Ok David just come back from dx on beach
So not bad on 20 m at 5:00 am this morning
If you read my article on the UNUN and aerial I use you will see that my own antenna seems to be clad in a blue sleeve. This aerial is designed to be collapsible - it can be erected in about two...
Well done John. Hope I work you one day
I now have ununs in stock, £20 posted to UK. SO239 sockets and a binding post.
