Hi Serge, In the contest I worked, CW, completely random (I did not have HB9Q on at all) Alex UA3TCF who has 2m dish and 200-250W. I saw his trace on the SDR, listened carefully and the QSO took about 15-20 minutes. I regularly work G4BAO with his 1.9m dish and the same power. A 2.4,m dish will get you lots of QSOs on CW and of course many more on JT.

For some of you that actually are operating on 1296 could tell me the minimum size for a prime focus dish or offset dish to operate on CW? after you have worked the big guys?? Would anything less than 10 FT/3M be worst looking at or not??.
Thank you
