More amazing QRP contacts

It still amazes me how QRP miracles happen. Switched the radio on today after a very busy week. First contact after a few minutes was with CU7AJ from Azores on 40m PSK. Then I switched to 30m and saw HS1NGR. But he was busy and I doubt I could get his atttention. Luckely I saw he spotted me via Hampots. So I just called CQ and hoped he got back to me. And he did. Wow, his signal was at least S7 on the S-meter of my FT-817 and -1dB on JT65. Look at the screenshot of the waterfall, isn't it amazing. I was pretty strong at his side as well. Number 72 in the 100 DXCC in 100 days challenge in the log. By the way if someone likes to start the challenge as well you can still participate. Just get in contact with NY4G Ariel via e-mail (can be found at QRZ.com).



Writing this blogpost I was already amazed and surprised.....then just a few minutes later this happens:


YV5JBI Venezuela in the log for nr. 73...

Amazing, amazing, amazing....

Who needs more then 5W ever to work the world?

    1. Ben elke keer verbaast over de resultaten Hans. De FT-817 is mijn "main" radio op het moment. 73, Bas
