What's the most fun you've had with 5 watts and a key? About a year ago, scanning the bands, I heard a CW station calling CQ from New Zealand -- about 7000 miles away -- and answered. We had a good slow-speed CW QSO, and he was amazed and surprised to learn that I was using only five watts.

Sounds like loads of fun! I have lots of desires to be able to operate out backpacking and camping with a homebrewed rig and antennas....

We are just starting our QRP CW journey. This is a great program (LCWO). Look forward to a year of learning.
