Watercolor Classes with Deb

Operating at low power on HF frequencies is very rewarding. When transmitter power is below five watts on CW or less than 10 watts on Single Side Band a skilled operator is challanged a bit more to make contact with fellow hams.

The antenna plays a more important role in QRP operations since the operator is relying upon the Effective Radiated Power (ERP) to achieve contact with another station.

High powered stations are not as concerned with losses in signal strength due to feed line and antenna inperfections.
