A QRP YouTube DXCC Playlist , COUNTRIES, A -L (NOW @ 139 DXCC entities)

(note: YouTube in it's infinite wisdom, has it set up that I can not upload more than 118 videos to a playlist. Since I have over that, I am breaking up my DXCC list into 2 groups, A-L and M-Z) QRP! --- A LITTLE power can go a LONG way! Proof? These QSOs were made from Seattle, WA using less than 5 Watts . I worked the the 1st 24 countries on all continents using a G5RV dipole; in July 2011, I added a small, 10/15/20 meter Yagi (up 36 ft/12 M) - in October 2013, I replaced the Yagi with a 3 band, 3 element Quad on the same roof tower.. I met my goal of 100 countries on 24 September, 2012 and will continue to upload each New One as I work them. If YOUR station is on this list, PLEASE QSL via the Buro, Direct or LOTW, I will reply to all cards. To work QRP DX, try it when the path is BEST. Note that in all these clips, the OTHER station is LOUD. Note: I obtained the Argonaut 509 shown in these videos from uber-contester: Danny, K7SS back in 1983. Danny and Homer Spence (K7RA/SK) used this same rig to work 175 countries between 1979 and 1982. Danny recently showed me the logs and the tally sheet for the countries. I am happy to carry on this old Argonauts proud tradition. My preference is to use the Argonaut when possible, but the side-tone and manual RIT offset makes it a pain to use on CW, so I use my Hendricks PFR-3 for 20/30/40 CW. I used my QRO rigs turned down to 5 Watts on for some CW and WARC bands.
