Congrats, om, on your IOTA expedition. I don't get on fone so I missed that one. I have that particular IOTA confirmed, but I did watch your posts on the DX forum. (one of these days I need to build the SSB kit for my K2. Its been sitting in there for the last 12 years of so.
I'm glad you got to work a bunch of QRPers.
I would like to add that you don't need a high solar flux necessarily. I've worked some of my best stuff with low solar flux. (not that a high solar flux is a bad thing
) I would just shorten the title - "QRP Guys--Never Give Up"
