"Scotland to Australia with 5 Watts via long path

A video posted on Youtube shows Callum, 2M0YCG in Scotland working a
station in Australia using just 5 watts.

YouTube description reads:

This is me speaking to Paul VK4MA. Paul was beaming Long Path to
Europe (unknown to me before our QSO) a distance of 23103 Km.

As you can see in the video I was using my usual setup - A Yaesu
FT-817ND running 5 Watts into my Cobwebb Antenna (fed with RG58) @
about 7 Metres above the ground and a LDG Z-817Auto ATU. Although it
took me about 20 calls hi hi...Paul managed to pick my signal out the
QRN/pileup. "

Anyone know what band this was on? The You Tube video was not well
focussed, and the band used isn't mentioned in the write-up. ICBA to
view the whole thing just to find this minor piece of information, if
indeed it's mentioned at all.

Looks like it might be 14.2 something. (235?)

It's not well focussed but you can clearly see the display showing
14.1?? during the first few seconds of the video. In fact it could be
14.195 but there isn't the background cacophony of jungle noises,
grunting, squeaking, baboon calls, carriers, tones and general pishing
about that accompanies operation on that frequency. ;-)

You're right that it doesn't say which band was used. If the QSO is
worthy of reporting then it omitting essential information is annoying.
But not as annoying as ending the article with "73's". Or saying
"operator name here is" when "my name is" is shorter and clearer.

I was also going to ask what the frequency was (a glaring omission). To
be honest, I simply can't make out what the display says.

It wasn't 10m, was it (as this has recently been pretty lively)? If so,
that would explain the lack of the usual 14.195MHz rubbish.

If you're really bored, try saving out a few frames of the video,
splitting the RGB channels in Photoshop or PSP etc, then recombining
the best and overlaying into a grey scale blow-up.

Still bleedin' difficult to read, but it'll kill a couple of hours.

Well, it's obvious that those with the strongest signals are those who
tend to get replied to. A 'QRP hint' might just result in the other
station listening a bit more carefully for your signal (even if he has
first to do a "QRZ the QRP station?" in the hope of temporarily
silencing the big boys). Of course, underhanded QRO stations might also
use this ploy in order gain a sneaky advantage.

Using "QRP" after one's call has been established practice for years, as
Frank should know. As usual he is just having a go at newcomers.

It is perfectly legal (unlike some claim).

Perhaps Frank lacks the skill to operate QRP and feels the need to have go
at QRP operators and he does suffer power envy- remember his tantrum over EI
getting more power.

(I will only mention in passing his bad language- tut tut, hardly the
language of someone who pretends to have standards. Of course Charlie will
approve as it adds "colour" or some such.)

I don't think you you'll find "/QRP" mentioned in your licence, but it
certainly is a transgression which doesn't really do anyone any harm.

Mind you. when I were a lad, the PO/MPT/HO were sticklers for enforcing
the correct ands full format of a callsign. For example, I distinctly
remember a warning in The Bull that certain amateurs had been
reprimanded for using (say) "double-A B" instead of the correct "A A B",
and others for omitting the prefix.

There's a recommendation that certain suffixes be used in certain
circumstances, but nothing to say that other suffixes would be
illegal.

Exactly.

Provided the callsign is given, with (when they WERE required) the necessary
/A etc adding QRP etc was never illegal.

Oh, quite. While some QRP stations actually do use the suffix "/QRP",
2M0YCG does not. After his callsign, he simply says "QRP". It's VK4MA
who gives him the suffix "slash QRP".

I don't have any problem with that. Back in the 70s/80s I used to
make a point of listening for stations doing so - particularly on CW.
I've even reduced my RF down to see how good their receiving set-up
was. Anybody can work QRO.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Just as anyone can "work" (sic) QRP! All it takes is a turn on the
power control knob and wind the power down. I've done it many times
when working VK/ZL, going down to 1 or 2 watts from 400 just see how
the other guy gets me and usually getting a decent report. The answer
lies in the antenna of course.

What I don't hear of is a 1 watt + dipole station in the UK working a
1 watt + dipole in VK or ZL. Usually there's a QRO (100W +) at one end
and often a yagi as well).

Some (and I repeat some) QRPers seem to think they are a race apart
and better than the rest of us, in the same way vegetarians and "green
power" users think they are something special ;-)

Well unless you have enough in hand to cope with a 20-25dB reduction in
signal level then inevitably signals will be likely to disappear into
the noise. Sometimes signals are good enough over a long path for QRP
to be viable, sometimes not.

IMHO the skill rests entirely with the person receiving the QRP
station and not with the QRP operator.

I really object when someone signing <callsign>/QRP calls a DX
station as if that should grant him special treatment....

I have been known to call "CQ QRP" (in CW Brian) but never to sign as
/QRP and I have in the past fallen foul to DX stations giving preference
in the pileup to those signing as /QRP when they obviously weren't.
Recently I received a direct request from a Swedish station with
individual cards for each band I had worked him on asking me for
individual cards for confirmation and requesting that I identify him as
SM5***/QRP, I was happy to do so.

Using "QRP" after one's call has been established practice for years, as
Frank should know. As usual he is just having a go at newcomers.
It is frowned upon by the QRP community which you as a member of the
G-QRP club you should know, but then as a recent blow in to the club and
HF operation you're just demonstrated once again your utter cluelessness.
Post by Brian Reay.
It is perfectly legal (unlike some claim).
Perhaps you'd be good enough to point me to where in the licence it
recommends to append /qrp to ones callsign especially if one is a FL
twat running 10w (ha!) which is not QRP.
Post by Brian Reay.
Perhaps Frank lacks the skill to operate QRP and feels the need to have go
at QRP operators and he does suffer power envy
Really Brian? I've been a member of the G-QRP club for decades and for a
long time I ran an entirely home brewed QRP station, you might also want
to check where I finished and what DX I worked as a QRP entrant (5w out)
in a recent major contest. So tell the group Brian how long exactly
you've been a member of the G-QRP club and please feel free to embellish

You have me confused with Len. I posted the info and Len had the

QRO is on the cards for the UK. Maybe you should up your medication a tad?

As you know, in order to filter out the mindless FL rubbish that
apparently floods the group, I run on a watch filter, with a lower
priority catch-all kill filter Author:{.} Delete. As Reay isn't in my

in the filter. All I see of him is when, thankfully rarely, someone
reposts his stuff.

It's a good approach, but how could new posters get onto your watch
list if everyone used your method?

I gave up on Google Groups because of the lack of filters, so I'm
currently just using a killfile. I do have plans to train a Bayesian
spam filter with what is signal vs. what is noise in this group (or my
opinion of what is signal and what is noise) and see how that works in
the long run.

I have to put them on.

What usually happens is that a new poster of the right calibre will be
replied to by one already on the watch list, so I will see that reply.
I can disable the kill filter and sample the appropriate number of
messages to get the original posting, add the info to the watch list,
re-enable the kill filter then engage Apply Filters to get rid of any
dross that was sampled. It sounds fiddly but is in reality just a few
mouse clicks.

It's not a perfect system, but it has the merit of catching the
nymshifters with no extra effort on my part.

If everyone used this system some other method would be needed to find
new posters, but this is a case where the anarchic nature of the group
has its benefits.

There will two big ones from the Belfast area and at this point in time
an unknown number from around the province. Specials will also be on
from Southampton, Cherbourg, Cobh and New York, the NewfoundLand Club
are aiming to be over the wreck site with a submersible down at the
wreck come the day. A number of Titanic museums around the globe will be
activated and of course you'll have a number of main land clubs that
have absolutely feck all to do with the Titanic using call signs that
really should have been issued to the province.

There's a lot I can't tell you just yet and a lot is still in the
planning stages with a lot of letters and emails to be written (and a
LOT have already been written), phone calls made and meetings attended.

On what basis you say the "call signs that really should have

event call sign. Just because someone was more organised doesn't make them a
"wannabe" or a "usurper".

So, I was right then. I thought so. You are SO predictable.
You expect everything to be given to you.
What a childish and puerile post. Grow up Brian.

BTW I've talking a few of your ex associates from the upper echelons of
the RSGB, even I was shocked at the contempt in which you are held.

I'll take that as complement. Some of them I would not want their approval,
in fact I would openly seek the converse.
Rather like your approval Frank- were I to get it I'd know I'd done
something wrong.

The nuRSGB is an environment for "yes men" and cover ups, including one in
your area I'm trying to expose.

Shock! Horror! Brian Reay admits all is not well with amateur radio in
GI. Remind me Brian, how long I've been saying just such a thing? How
long have you spent rubbishing all the facts I posted? My, my.. doesn't
it just go to show how childish and puerile your postings and antics
have been over the years...

Wonder if I could represent the poor sods from below decks who were
kept locked in till the toffs used the boats. After it sank and the
ensuing 'rescue' of the bodies, of course they didnt lift the scum
from the water, they had to wait for a whole other trip for that.

There's a lot I can't tell you just yet and a lot is still in the
planning stages with a lot of letters and emails to be written (and a
LOT have already been written), phone calls made and meetings attended.

family ran between the wars.

You know, I'm sure I had an eight pin DIN plug around here somewhere.
Why do Icom (and Kenwood) have to use those things for their ACC
ports?
Feel lucky that you're not after a 10 or 13 pin DIN with contacts so
close together that you can hardly solder to them.

Now, I actually have one of those from an Icom (706MkII). I wondered
why they supply them with wires on. Then I took it to bits... ;o)

One other thing, does no one ever tell these twats that
calling and stating you are qrp is akin to begging for a qso?
""The children now love luxury; they have bad manners, contempt for
authority; they allow disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of
exercise. Children now are tyrants, not the servants of their households.
They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They contradict their
parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross
their legs, and tyrannize their teachers.?"

well done callum,
fred dont you ever get tired of putting people down?
the guy was rightly proud of working that station qrp but you just had to stick the boot in.
you must have had a bad upbringing to turn out as sad and bitterly twisted as you are.
have you though of therapy i hear it works wonders.
i suspect you were bullied at school and have kept all that pent up anger for years until you came across this forum and found an outlet. you sad sad man.
