Yes, I am. No, I'm not religious. But I believe in QRP. QRP with 5W or less. And yes, DX is possible, even with SSB. But you need to be patient, need to have time, need to be at the right frequency and need a lot of luck. If you have all of it you work the stations you desire. Easy? No absolutely not! But it will give you more satisfaction. Besides that if you work DX QRP you accomplish something other HAMradio operators find hard to believe.
Propagation forecast is "poor" for 12m today. However, I don't care about poor. I just listen and see if the DX is there. And yes, through the day I heard DX several times on the 12m band. That doesn't mean I work the DX, just listen. Then in the evening greyline propagation lifted a little. I made a QSO with KC9NBV, Indiana, USA.
Amazing? No, not amazing. This morning was amazing. Calling CQ on 30m. I was answered by ZP5RPO from Paraquay. Wow, that is what I call DX. But more amazing a few minutes later my CQ was anwered by ZL3NB from Bill from Christchurch, South Island, New Zealand. A distance of about 18500km.
So, you see, I am a believer. A QRP believer, even when propagation is not that good.
I'm now at 65 DXCC in the 100 DXCC in 100 days QRP challenge. 35 to go...
