I could hear myself extremely well also using about 20 watts. I tried SSB
and CW no takers. I was trying around center of pass band.

Will listen for other next time instead of running my big mouth.

I heard myself calling CQ for about 2 minutes, peaking 569, but  no takers
that I could hear.  Then, about 2 minutes later, I heard  AA5PK calling CQ,
about the same strength, but I could no longer hear  myself.
It's a challenge!
