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.
