I haven't been too active since my last post. Conditions not great from this QTH. Maybe better where you are. I did work EA7FLE and I3GVN, both under 1000 miles from Benodet, (I continue to use the 1000 MPW rating though I am in km country).
I remain near 14.060 mHz though I do cruise between 14.050 and 14.065.
Still one watt from the HW-8 which has been performing reasonably well.
