I run 5watts , got my first SSB qso on 10M, this week, he was on a rag with the west indies. As soon as the West Indies op said QRT i pounced , no answer , so i moved down some called my QSO's Call and BAMM! He came back and asked where my QTH was , then he turned his Beam at me, nice fellow , only on hour away , i feel like i conquered the World !( i was not sure my mike or SSB was operational ! hihi) all these big numbers and DX stuff does not impress me, i am going portable soon with my Backpack ,Batts, homebrew antennas and my old ARgo556 in tote , will post on SOTA , and  4SQRP spotting site, and have a blast, fresh air here i come ! yep my goal is to loose those winter fat cells, less is more after all, hihi. Enjoy all , 73's and 2s, AJ  Grin

Both, but pouncing is usually more productive, at least for me.
