I listened on 17M and heard some QSOs in progress, so I switched my SteppIR to the band and checked the tuning on the last frequency I heard someone say "Standing by" on. I gave a quick CWID at 50W and got back a call from ZL1AMO Ron in Auckland, New Zealand. I upped to 100W from my K3 and had a nice QSO with Ron, who reported it was 15C there. We exchanged a bit of CW fun as well.

I just worked Neil on Roi-Namur on 14.003 with 5W from the K3 and got a 559 first call, CW. I gave Neil 599. We've QSO'd before and I was in the log and Neil said a quick hi when I let him know it was QRP.
