10m sporadic E, trans-equatorial and other exotic modes can often be pretty hot during this
time of year. Even with a few watts, contacts can often be made. Suitable crystals are
available as follows:
I have a few each of these FT243s left (and numerous other 10m crystals that will work with
almost any ham rig from the golden era of tube radio!)
Limited stock available - most of these are $14.00 each.
Some folks say not to expect much from 3 or 4 watts of AM on ten meters, but under the right
circumstances I have made QRP contacts into central Asia and other spots on the opposite
side of the globe with decent R5 signal reports each way. Those were with a converted CB
rig, so would be similar power levels...
