1,000+ MPW award... finally!

Sat 05 December 2015

SKCC 1,000 Miles per Watt Award 2000 MPWA few months ago I reported that I had achieved the 1,000 miles per watt SKCC award only later to find out that my radio was putting out 7 watts instead of the 0.1 watts I thought it was putting out.  After sending the radio off for repair (there were a few other issues that cropped up) I now have a working radio that has been fully calibrated.  One of my first contacts was with K2PAY in New York.  I was able to work him with my 100mW and put him in the log at a distance of 240 miles and 2402 miles per watt!

I'm happy to have the award with the 2,000 miles per watt endorsement.
