QRP operation is considered using power levels of 5 watts or less CW and 10 watts or less SSB.

I like weak signals

Do more with less...QRP

new station items

yes I did buy some items for the station:
a: a spiderbeam 12m telescopic fiberglass mast- should be very useful for building and testing various antenna builds, and to use  for portable operating
b: 500' spool of 18 ga. "532" true antenna wire for a 160 meter vertical planned for field day and for other antenna experiments (wire/copper sure has become a precious metal!)expensive.... I hoped to get some sort of ac-1 or glowbug kit to build but did not sell enough "stuff" to make that happen. I will play with the single tube knight kit for now and get a tube transmitter/transceiver kit soon. Our annual Dayton DX Dinner was great, and overall the Hamvention was very nice also.
