Power output is about 5 Watts into an inverted Vee up 70 feet fed with ladder line. Key is my late grandfather's J38. My receiver is an Icom R71A hooked up to a dipole in the attic. I may fire up my Knightkit T150 or if all else fails my Kenwood TS830 but plan to work NRR on just the homebrew xmtr.
