How much power?



I just attempted my first contact on Echo this evening.  I was using an
Arrow, tripod mounted with about 2.5 watts on the uplink. (wrong battery in
the W32 <smile>)


Receive signals were full quieting.


Do I need to use the full 5 watts to access or was I just holding
experiencing jitters and probably on the wrong tone?
