I never knew that but have such a lack of interest in it these days someone might have mentioned it but I didn't bother taking any notice.

Yes I agree, 10w works well on those narrow bands and pisses all over the FM radio band and band I, which as we all know reaches much further than band II.

I'd say band I can easily do double the distance of 'FM' and 27-28MHz (NFM) can easily do the double that of Band I!

Agreed, on a slightly different note, I managed New York on 40mtrs with 1 watt on a G5RV about 3 years ago.

Canada as well as the usual European skip coming in on UK FM (Muppets) a couple of days ago, and managed to have a quick report from the station in Canada on 20 watts until signal faded and noise levels increased.

I used to have a scheduled contact with a friend in Hong Kong on 20m (14MHz) using just 5 Watts pep of SSB each way! It was my first SSB rig - that I built myself - and I still have it here somewhere. I let my amateur licence lapse about 15 years ago.
Is it meant to smoke like that? :shock:

Well I picked a CRE-8900 10m radio off ebay for 90£ came with a PC lead to open it up for 11m. You can buy the radios new for 135£ off eBay now. Better than my uniden 341!

Been able to speak with France, Germany and best so far Italy not bad for 12 watts and all on a boomerang antenna on the balcony. Lots of activity on SSB side and still quite a lot of local FM stuff.

Suppose you take what you want from it!

Here's a blast from the past, wilst rumaging around in my loft the other day, I found my old Ham International Concorde II. Totally unmolested, the covers never been taken off and original microphone. It worked perfectly. :D

There is still a heathy 11m scene worldwide - if conditions are good the frequencies get over crowded. 11 seems more popular and deffo more fun than legal amateur bands.

Found this old clanger knocking around.
Also have an original Ham Concorde II & a Hy-Gain V, all still working.
Loved the squeaky roger beep on the Hy-Gain 8-)

I've got one of these beauties:

Always liked these & the Deltaforce, and close runners are the Lincoln, Grant, and Emperor Shogun.

I've been looking out for a Stalker 9 on eBay & have put a bid in on the odd ones, but they end up selling for ridiculous prices.

I've always found these to be quite a nice little radio, nice receiver, good audio quality on SSB and small enough not to get in the way in the car (unlike my Alinco DX70).
