Life is too short, that’s why in my opinion you should try to work QRP, hi!
This Friday afternoon me and my friend Stan UA3LMR (also RD2A) gave it a try again from Moscow park named “Fili,” a very nice and quiet place. This time my catch on the 20-meter-band wasn’t big at all in comparison with the previous outing which you can see in the video below.
Only two Russian stations from the Krasnodar region answered me during an hour and they were put in my log and then sent to the yearlong QRP marathon “Field Flowers.” An Italian ham didn’t make out my call, and New Caledonian’s didn’t ever hear my signal. Propagation and ultra low power are not only to blame. Probably during the work week is not the best time to find a lot operators working on the bands, on one hand. On another hand, the weekend’s bands are usually filled with contesters. What to do? To try whenever you can, of course.
In my point of view, the results of working QRP may sometimes be unlucky, but you will be always happy with the process!
73 and see you on the bands!
