I've operated FD QRP with a tribander and low dipoles from a 5,000 ft
peak near Monterey, CA. I could hold a run frequency for most of FD on
CW, and had rates around 70/hour at the end of the contest! It's like
stealing candy from a baby. In Steve's case, it's like being at least
1,500 miles closer to whoever you're trying to work.
