Re: APE today


Thanks Buddy! That was a huge effort, thanks for trying. We'll look again today. I won't be on the air, but let us know when you are on if you can. 

If you have any other questions feel free to give me a call.

Hi all,

My first attempt at an APE activation did not go very well.  I only
tried 20 meters, and I heard a lot of activity... but they couldn't hear
me!  Running QRP level of 5 watts wasn't productive as I only was able
to make 2 contacts for about 4-5 hours of calling.   I had a ton of QRM
from other stations and then some Olivia stations cranked up.   I'll try
again tomorrow from same location, hope to get on the air from noon to
around 4pm.  Next week I'll be operating from a location closer to home
but still QRP as only rig I have presently is a KX2.
