I would like to take part in the NA/EU event but I’m not sure if I’m free. I don’t have an option for anything other than QRP - 5W max from FT817.
I was interested to see a number of RBN hits from NA during my activation on Wednesday. Given the ears that our NA friends tend to have, I’m sure it would have been possible to have a QSO, just a shame it was so early in the morning EST. At first I was running about 300mW from my Birthday RockMite on 14.0584 (rig comes out just once per year on the special day!), then I switched to my MTR-5B at about 4W.
So despite 20m seeming extremely dead, it appears as though there was a pipeline to east coast US late morning.
At least I think there’s a glimmer of hope for those taking part.
