Suddenly I saw a VK4 station appear on my JT65 screen. Still I work QRP 5 watt with JT65. When I gave CQ VK7XX John from Tasmania came back for me. His report was -5 db, he gave me -18 db.
Theoretical he could hear me with 500 milliwatt as well. With JT65 it is possible to hear stations with -28 db. That's why I like JT65 because you can work DX with very low power.
With WSPR I was running 500 milliwatt on 10 meter. Best distance was FR1GZ with 9525 km.
Update about my XYL: The operation was successful, the edges of the wound were clean. The plastic surgeon made a reconstruction of her right breast. The oncologist suggest that she needs a chemotherapy for a half year. A TAC cure, docetaxel, Doxorubicine and cyclophosphamide. That will be very heavy. But together we are strong and we will fight against this cancer.
Have a nice weekend!
