    It is amazing what you can do with 2-3 watts.

    I don't even have to try hard.


    Just start a QSO normally, then sign /QRP later.

    It really depends. Are you having any trouble with operating in any way?
    What would you like help on?
    What modes do you operate / want to operate?

    I guess my message sound like I am a novice.

    41 years of operating QRP off and on and am wondering what other people are doing for QRP.

    I am mainly a cw guy, but I would be interested in trying other modes if I can ever get the process of using them ironed out from an accessibility prospective.
    One mode I see that would really be useful is js8call.
    Based on how it is used right now using the regular client I don't think will work for me.
    I will need to figure out a way to process the incoming data packets and collect them into a program that can be written to speak them out in a useful way and then figure out how to design something to take action on them.
    Probably some program to read the log file generated by Js8call or a program to monitor a tcp / udp port for this information.

    Have you thought of running a packet BBS.

    I run one here and it is all on AX25 packet using the internet.

    950 messages.

    Access using a simple prompt.

    You would do it either with VHF RF 145.01 (you are too far away) or over the internet (cwnet.org) should work. Then you would sign in from a terminal.

    Then it's old time packet. 950 messages on the system.

    What OS are you running on? Do you happen to have a Raspberry Pi or random other computer you can put Linux on sitting around doing nothing? You can connect your TS590S via USB and run Direwolf, making a virtual TNC, then 'kissattach' that as if it was a real one. And bam, ax25 packet.
