Still going QRP

Even with SSB there is a possibility to make DX QSO's. This video is a nice example. Today I worked IW2NOH and SQ9JXB with 1 watt JT9-1 on 20 meter this morning. I was calling LA3LJA but he did not come back for me, so I walked away from the rig to get a cup of coffee, and then I saw he was returning for me. So I missed the QSO here. Sorry.

    That was a nice 1 watt SSB QSO you made.
    The other station also came in very good.
    What antenna were you using?

    Hello Bob, I am using an end fed wire (11,5 m long) as a sloper, highest point 6 meters. A very simple antenna. But works fine for me. 73 Paul
