CQ WW WPX CW Contest – May 25th, 2019

In this video, I get a chance to talk a little philosophy while driving to a local park. I then set up my Mountain Topper and SOTABEAMS dipole and work 11 stations… 8 of which were 5,000+ miles away! This will show you that a tiny, battery-powered radio can produce excellent results and allow you to have a ton of fun.

  1. Cliff,
    Inspiring! I’ve enjoyed different aspects of amateur radio, thanks for demonstrating what can be done with QRP. I had less than an hour to operate in a recent contest and had plenty of DX with 3 or 4 watts on my recently built 40m QCX, great little radio. Baleric Is., Slovak republic, Bulgaria, Serbia and Canada. That was fun!!!
