Now that I have been into the ham radio hobby for almost a year I find it very interesting how our atmosphere make a radical difference into radio propagation. As I sit on my couch writing this post I am just simply amazed that
* With 5 watts I was able to connect to Quebec, Canada
* With 100 Watts I am able to reach Sydney, Australia
ironically now with the band conditions for 10 meters the best I can do is reach a couple miles away.
