FREQ #22: French Polynesia – FO/K5PI

Another easy one call 5 watt QRP QSO – French Polynesia

It feels like its been a while since my last QRP counter, but its only been just over a week. I’m in no hurry, and I still am amazed at what you can work with 5 watts. I will say this – your timing when you call is everything – there is no brute force with QRP.

A sad development at my QTH is the fact that at night – after work, my QTH is just swamped with noise. Its man made and its a “grinding” noise that is at least S9 every night – wiping out 40M (especially). Major bummer – if I were just starting out toward DXCC HR – I’d be screwed and would just give up.

I’m still very pleased I pursued it when I did – and em more than happy to get up in the middle of the night when 40M is a quiet S5 or S6 here – and running solar charged battery power.
