The dark side

Oh my, what have I done

Don't take away my QRP CW card. 

I picked up an old, high impedance Heathkit microphone having the appropriate 2-pin connector.  One pin is the mic line and the other is for the PTT switch. The shield is common.

I set the mic level to indicate some movement on the ALC and peaks were occurring around 100w.  QRP SSB will be tough to achieve.  

I worked a few stations on 80m and they delivered great reports and offered their own stories of Heathkit radios. 

The old rig is certainly a conversation starter.

That's all for now

So... well, my QRP saying doesn't go with this post, so...  warm your tubes and smell the cooking resistors
