Wire & Milliwatts!!!!





Reverse Beacon Report Running 900 Mw  June 20, 2013 NAQCC Mw Sprint
Simply amazing what a wire in the sky and 900 Mw will do!!!  The NAQCC holds milliwatt sprints a couple times a year.  Last night was the first time I participated.  I ran the K3 at 900 mW to my OCF dipole and was amazed at what happened.  Above is the reverse beacon report when I called cq in the contest.  The best contact I had was MS the closest was my neighbor in NH...pretty cool..my little 900mW signal really got out there..but I wasn't the only one!!!!

Take a look at the other results...wow!!!
NAQCC Results mW Contest June 2013

I was on the air for about an hour and a half and ended up with 15 contacts in the USA...7 on 20M, 7 on 40M and 1 on 80M...pretty cool for under one watt.  I missed several others due to not being more skilled with zero beating the station...something I'll have to work on.

Here is my 900 mW log for the sprint (copied from my Cabrillo file):
