Updated: WPX CW AUDIO added
KL2A (Member of Team USA WRTC 2014) returned to rural W7 using the callsign of KQ7W for the weekend to test the 20' OCF vertical dipole from a beachfront QTH.
The ham 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 is 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 RBNs that reported hearing us all over the world. Remember, this is 50W to a 20' VDA vertical antenna.
