    I'd play, but man I have not had any conditions that I can count on. .. but then I guess that is all part of it.

    I'm moving this weekend so won't have any antennas up for a couple of weeks but I'll play if you schedule it later in the month. Maybe 10 and 11 will wake up a bit.

    Let's keep it somewhat even 2222!! 100 watts SSB?? Full legal limit. 4 watts am, 12 watts SSB. Might be tough with conditions the way they've been, unless you get some evening dx. Then it's much easier to make contacts as there aren't as many people on. Haven't used the TNT 600hd with the icom yet though. Hmmmm??? JK, I will be keeping it at 12 watts on my end. Makes it more challenging for sure!!

    222 - I agree 100w would seem reasonable, but I am not opposed to legal limits. I just thought we might shake it up a bit.

    So July 11-12??? Let's do it!! Unless there is something else going?? 0222 the only issue I see with using 100 watts is that some of the ticket holders that might join in may not want to use more that legal limit to be safe. They may have to pull the cb/SSB radio out and use it. It sure doesn't hurt to try though. With conditions the way they are and the a-holes that wanna play games, it makes for a chalets if you don't have a bit of power or a very good antenna. Now if I had a good beam antenna up my mind might be changed LOL. But for now I am limited to what I have. Looking at other toys right now. Maybe a moto bike???
