I've worked them using 3 watts PEP and an Arrow.  IMO XW-2F has the best transponder. 

BTW, I worked Craig on -2A and -2F in the past hour.  WA7ETH was in there also.

These U/V XW-2 birds are so loud almost anyone with the most modest 
station can work them.

I have 296 contacts logged between XW-2A,B,C,D,E, & F.  The majority on 
are A & C.
