    I hear you. QRP works fine for me. As they say, there's 3 things that anyone can or must do, poop, pay taxes, and make QRO contacts. ;)

    Vertical coaxial antenna build.

    Try the top section at 99", and put a choke (5 coax wraps on 4" former) at 96" down from the point you peeled off your braid from the top section. You likely want to start with the top a little long for trimming to tune. Investigate the flower pot antenna for potentially helpful information.
