Pt. Reyes Station KPH
Every morning during the summer, Oceania, the Pacific and Asia pound into the SF Bay Area. In fact, even rare DX like FT5ZM, VK0EK, FT5WG and others have been worked and easily.
With QRP its more of a challenge, making the DX we west coasters take for granted something special. Soon – the DX activity will open up to the Caribbean and Central and South America at our sunset and beyond. In the Winter, the long path to EU opens up as well – so year round, solar cycle round, 40M is where its at. Band conditions are usually quieter than during our evening.
I expect that each and every QRP QSO will be cherished – a lot more than when I ran QRO.
