Reunion Island with 0,05 watt

Sometimes QRPp is great fun when results are fine. I was using 50 mW on 40 meter WSPR. I got reports all over Europe, but suddenly I was reported by FZ4OZ from Reunion Island with SNR -23 dB. That's really fun. Distance: 9533 km.

  1. Very interesting QRPp result. Which antenna are you using? Pse try also with JT65 lets say on 20M with 50mW if you wish and keep us informed for instances over 7-8000kms. 73 de SV1GRN

    1. I use a HyEndFed wire antenne for 40-20 and 10 meter. Is anybody using JT65 nowadays? Maybe FT8. Though JT65 and JT9 are more sensitive. 73 Paul

    2. I use JT65 from time to time and enjoy it, shure there is very little activity there. Any dx station wanting a sked? 73 de SV1GRN

  2. I have always found QRPp very exciting and to think your signal was not even as strong as a cordless phone but you still made it all that distance.

    1. Hi Mike, absolutely true. That makes QRP very interesting. Last week I saw a German station using 500 watts with WSPR. ;-) 73 Paul
