Hi Topband,

On Feb 8 I made my 2nd QSO with VK6HD with 5w.  This prompted me to see
what the limits of QRP are so I tried this AM with 1w and Mike came right
back to me.  This week I also worked ON4WW with 5w and HC8N with 1w.

I am posting this as a tie in to the Poor Antenna/Good DX thread and also
as a plea to those DX stations with broken amps and high noise to keep
trying.  From time to time conditions conspire to make contacts possible
under very difficult conditions.  

Thanks to ZK2CA/VF for providing some morning variety lately.

73, Rob K2WI
