Crossing the Atlantic, QRP

On Saturday Feb 7th at night I got a 559 report from Maryland, USA. This is the first transatlantic QRP QSO on my homebrew balcony antenna. 30m CW, of course. TU Bill, good ears!

On Sunday night I worked Russia and Ukraine, with good signals. I was surprised to find the band so crowded after two weeks of QRT. 2xQRP was possible too.
