    I could hear almost everyone else, but was having a hard time being heard myself. I managed to get checked-in but that's about it. The off-center-fed wire dipole antenna I'm using isn't great on 40m and I'm only running barefoot at 100 watts.

    I'm getting more interested in communications and had a question: If I want to listen to this net it sounds like I will need an all mode HF transceiver. Is this correct?

    I have a small shortwave radio but there is no option to listen to LSB.

    Yeah, you'd need a receiver with sideband option. And since we're not putting out a ton of power you'd be hard pressed to hear us without an outside antenna. On my Grundig SWR I still have a hard time hearing even the closest stations with just the antenna jilt into the radio.
