Right on! I use my TS 670 on 40, 15, 10 and 6 ssb,cw,fm and AM at 5 to 10
watts output. I have worked from near Atlanta to Arizona and New Mexico on
40 AM at mid day. I work 200 to 400 miles on 40 daily with 54 to 58
reports.Close ion I get S9 to 10 over depending on propagation. I believe
the magic number is about 15 watts input as the minimum for consistent
results.Yes I know 10 watts AM is max qrp. But then I worked 150 miles with
my BC611 on 3885 one night--alright it was hooked to the Carolina windom.

Healthfully yours,
                          Don W4BWS
