500mW on 20 meter

A few days ago Bert PA1B made a nice diagram and what can be achieved with lower power levels instead of my standard 5 watts WSPR on 20 meter. [read article] So I tried 500mW, first on 10 meter, but there were no spots. So I moved to 20 meter in the late afternoon with 500mW into my end fed wire antenna. I was spotted by VK5MR with -26dB [15.844 km] and JH3APN with -28 dB [9209 km] I am happy with this result.

  1. Hallo Paul, schitterend met 500mW!
    Leuk dat Bert daar zijn berekeningen op heeft losgelaten en wederom het bewijs dat het ook met minder kan.

    1. Hallo Hans, het blijft altijd leuk om te experimenteren met lage vermogens. En de condities waren nog geeneens excellent. Dus kun je nagaan. 73 Paul
