Australia

With WSPR my 2 watt signal was heard in Australia, VK8CH. That's 13512 km! Wow, just with 2 watts. Yesterday I read that Roger G3XBM has the same results. So I checked today also 40 meter and tried also my luck. And keep in mind that conditions on HF are very poor nowadays. So I am very happy with this personal QRP record.

  4. Hello Paul, What a fantastic achievment - that your QRP signal from an 817 and Miracle Whip Wire can reach so far around the global is a credit to you. Very well done! I have contacted stations in your country twice now with my 817 and 20M longwire/ATU. Viva The Netherlands!!!
