Hello and some Q's

Hi All,

I am located in Livermore California and am slowly bringing up my weak-signal station, have been monitoring 2 meters lately - you can see my current (somewhat pitiful) VHF receive station details in my profile. Am surprised that I am seeing 300 kM+ decodes with my discone on a tripod....

I noticed that most stations are 20 to 50 watts - is that the accepted practice? Is more power welcomed or discouraged on 2 meters?

Should have my SDR based transceiver up and running soon, and after addressing the common stability/accuracy details, I hope to join you all on 2 meter transmit as well!
