38,000 Miles per Watt endorsement

Wed 16 December 2015

SKCC 1,000 Miles per Watt Award 38000Earlier today I made contact with Bert, F6HKA, at a distance of 3,845 miles.  We first made contact on 15 meters using 5 watts.  The band conditions were so good that I hooked up the K1 and we made contact on 17 meters.  That 17m contact was made with my side running only 100 mW which equates to 38,450 miles per watt.  This is the kind of contact I was hoping to log running milliwatts.  I always enjoy talking to Bert and am happy that he was able to hear my QRPp signal.  As long as the daytime bands keep being quiet perhaps I'll be able to best my current record.  I'll keep trying.
