Wonderful story John, I spent at least an 1/2 hour reading of your exploits. Outstanding. You must have quite a system to keep track of all the things you do. How do you do it? You have inspired me to get on the air some more. Worked VE2DHS tonight on 40 CW and chatted for quite a while. My "streak" is now 1 day Hihi! I should say I haven't gone to 5 w (using K3 at about 90 watts) but will give that a try tomorrow. Bands are not great now. Been licensed since 1967. Thanks again! - Harris K9RJ - Alamo, CA - Oct 3

QRP with wire antennas only. I run the KX3, LD-5, and HB-1A transceivers depending on what I am doing. KX3 is main rig. Was QRT for several years and came back big time this year going for DXCC with 5 watts. Well on my way. You have a very nice website. - Dave Edger N3CI - Choctaw, OK - Jul 15
I came to see a list of operations signals in Morse code. Still hope to find it, if it is still here. [See http://k3wwp.com/cw_ss_list_abbr.html (CW Section, Lists page)] But, I have really enjoyed looking around and getting your take operating on Low power and promotion of HAM radio. Thanks for your effort and passion. - Paul Wolf (NON- HAM) - Newport News, VA - Jul 14
Lots of great work on promoting Morse code and QRP. Love your Web site. Keep up the great work John - John, GI4EBS - Limavady, Northern Ireland - Jun 26
CW and home brewing forever! I worked 30 states on 7053 CW between 1962 and 1971 using a home brew 1-watt (2N696 finals) transmitter along with a home brew receiver utilizing a 7-transistor AM radio as the I.F. stage. - Rick N6IET <rastuts@gmail.com> - Los Angeles, CA - Jun 23

K3WWP, Thank you for this site and for your long standing promotion of qrp and morse code. K6ZQ - Jack K6ZQ <arrl@att.net> - Daly City, CA - Apr 4
Hi Guys I am just getting back on the air after a break of 15 years. I have always had an interest in QRP, in so much that even with my QRO Rigs I used to turn the power down to QRP levels. I did build and still possess a Lake DTR 7 40M CW Only Kit, and can still remember the thrill of working stations who gave me the same signal report as I'd given them using this little rig whilst they were using rigs costing in the thousands of $$$$$. I have just aquired a very nice fully loaded Elecraft K2 and so am looking forward at getting active again in our wonderful hobby. Hope to work some of you soon! 73's Nick G0HFL - Nick Major G0HFL - Earl Shilton, England - Mar 26

Hi John, saw your site referenced and dropped by, remembering your call and us having had several qso's over the years. Your log says we had 11 qso's between 1993-2008, on 160-80-40 & 30 M. I became inactive in 2009 for about 3-1/2 years due to work but I'm retired now. I'm going to keep my ears open for you and we can pick up where we left off last.COMMENTS - Roy Lincoln WA4DOU <wa4dou@juno.com> - Elm City, NC - Mar 26
