Hello M0CGH Colin and G3CWI Richard.
Winter is soon here so this is a fantastic way to go up to activate.
You would be surprised how mny you can qso. Best band I believe is 10MHz.
You have no contest and less BC. Please remember that the DC RX as in Rockmite is the mayor drawback in the rig. Power in range 70-100mW is no problem. Most SOTA chasers are real keen op. with excellent rigs and filters.But the DC RX is relative broad banded.(At least mine) A xtal higher up is nice.I talfed with DL2FI Peter on the G-QRP and he has a small super RX Miss Moscito for the 7Mc band. This can be put to reliable 100mW out for long battery life. If I soon go to Berlin I will get me one and have this for a try.
Please remember that all radio and equipment must use the same PP3 battery.
Like option ATU, keyer, audio filter, audio amp etc.
(Flashligt and cellphone excluded.Not in challange)
In hot autom wx +10c I took a new battery out. Same type as before.
Battery: #5 Philips Extreme life PP3
Finish Voltage: 8.98v
DXCCs: 10 DL,F,G,HA,LA,OE,OK,PA,SM,S5
Cumulative QSOs: 22
Cumulative DXCC: 10 (DL,F,G,HA,LA,OE,OK,PA,SM,S5 )
Tanks for all nice eye ball qso at G-QRP and hope you achieve god result on your qrpp. And foremost that you have fun with our hobby.
