Beaucoup apologies to all for my poor hand keying on 20 and 80 meters where the
elevated RF level interferes with the new logging computer.  I upgraded the

I used my K2 with the outboard KPA100/KAT100 100 watt amp/tuner, and I'm still
getting used to the K2 again after using my K3/10 for everything.

abandoning QRP.  It was great to finally work West Coast QRP sprinter NN7SS

Rig: K2/KPA100 at 99 watts; 135 foot doublet, ladder line fed at center, about
40 feet up (although one leg slopes down to the ground - the squirrels have been
vicious with my support lines).
