After the G1M had it’s little microphone issue and the subsequent repair, I finally got the chance to use it for the 100W&AW net. Ian had issues not due to my signal but due to another couple of operators just below the net frequency so the contact was short and struggled for, but I made it in.
29 contacts including Canada, Brazil, Trinidad & Tobago 5w on 40 & 20m. It was a beautiful afternoon at the park.
What is QRP? Well that’s low power in ham lingo. QRO would be the exact opposite being high power. Hams are licensed to operate up to 1500w on transmit in the USA through the FCC.
It was a pleasant day and for only $3 admission a good distraction and relaxing time while waiting on my new flight due to work demand and travel changes.
