y'all got to remember that when ten is open, 5 watts can work the world. I'm 
reminded of a time years ago when 4 of us here in shreveport were talking on 
ten meters and kept getting interrupted by others. We all turned our drive 
down as far as it would go. I had virtually no deflection from my wattmeter. 
Suddenly, a fellow in Tucson broke in and said "hey I can still hear you 


4 years ago when propogation was still decent, I worked 13 european 
countries on ten am with a barefoot ranger.

you just don't need a great deal of power to make good contacts on ten meters
