Have a Ten Tec qrp rig for cw only that I can use in my car with a 8 ft vertical which I plan to try out soon with weather b4 it gets too hot as don.t drive an operate so will be sitting hopefully in the shade. I also work cq100 the VOIP computer radio program only for Lic hams. Do cw when I can find a cw contact and also voice. So this keeps mtyself and many hams who still do HF or those who have had to give up HF operating but want to keep up a hamming life.
