Updated: WPX CW AUDIO added
KL2A (Member of Team USA WRTC 2014) returned to rural W7 using the call KQ7W for the weekend to test the 20' OCF vertical dipole.
Bands weren’t great but you can hear a fun opening very-late evening on 20-40M from near Seattle. The background DX in the audio files are worth noticing!
Jon (KL2A) writes, "please excuse the LID'ery, it was freezing at night. I was wrapped in a sleeping bag, just the fingers out for the CW paddle, with only the light from the laptop, radio and the stars! A real good time."
W6/7 mini-regional ”run”
Other noteworthy highlights are the DX RBN's that reported hearing us all over the world. Remember, this is 50W to a 20' OCF antenna.
