QRP vs 20 Watts – What is the Practical Difference?

Hello Operators

The last time I shared one his videos Tracy VE3TWM from Outdoors on the air took us along for the ARRL field day. This time Tracy has certainly stepped up the game, by making an experiment he calls qrp versus 20 watts, what are the practical differences.

From my perspective, there are too many operators who feel their radios have two transmit power levels, off and 100 Watts. It may not might be fair to do so, but in past years I’ve called this the “contest mentality”.

Anyway, watch the video. It very well may help you change your mind, about the amount of power your station is running.
