QRP on my new FT-817-ND

Well Sundays are usually my day for messing with radio so after my purchase this week of an ft-817nd I decided to give it a whirl on the M0CVO multiband antenna.....

As you can see the results are pretty impressive for such a tiny qrp radio and as the signal was being heard in North & South America, as well as South Africa. I can also conclude that my antenna system is performing very well too.............

P.S. after talking to Chris M0RSF it turns out the these stations that have heard me did so whilst I was transmitting 2.5w and not the full 5w ..............even more impressed now am I......hmmmmmmmm sorry for the Yoda speak.....

Best 73 all, Enjoy the hobby
