The usual lowest common denominator TV fare again tonight so I went upstairs to my hole-in-the-wall radio shack to listen and perhaps work a station or two.
Had a nice QSO with OZ3FI. Not the first time. He had a very good signal from what I expect was his KX3. He gave 10 watts as power.
Nan, JA4FKX again. He completed a QSO with a station and sent another CQ. I called and he returned. Not an easy contact. He had a good signal but plenty of QRM (2x as much on a direct conversion receiver). He gave me a 459 which was, probably, generous. Still, got the contact.
The rig was the Heath HW-8 and power one watt. 20 meters, as usual.
The photo explains why he was able to hear me. From his QRZ page.
