    Hmmm, possibly. Same result in the end.

  3. Sticky: Poll: General discussion Re: Award for working /P stations from your non /P station

    Interesting that most replies say yes but most pollsters say no.

    What's going on??

  4. Sticky: Poll: General discussion Re: Award for working /P stations from your non /P station

    I'm in a minority then. I'm okay with that.

    Frequencies?

    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...

    General discussion Re: New Platinum award level

    Good idea if people have asked for it.


    I still think my "Marathon" idea is a good challenge for the dedicated few!

    General discussion Re: Awards criteria

    Jon,

    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...

    General discussion Re: Awards criteria

    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...

    Jon,

    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?

    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...

    Re: LiFePo4 Battery Use

    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.

    Re: LiFePo4 Battery Use

    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...

    Re: Five Beach Activation & Pics

    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"...
  21. Re: Stating Power Outputs while calling...................

    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.
