Hello Tim,

I have the same problem here in Europe. Everybody making a zoo on the 
usual transponder and nobody on the qrp transponder.
Calling cq during the entire pass and all I heard was myself with 
amazing signals with only 2 watts on the uplink.
Maybe some operators in Europe read this and use the qrp transponder 
while it is on.
