Low power can still go a long way

Pierre, ZS6A’s 5 Watt signal booming in. Distance around 300km. Amazing what low power can achieve. Here using my End Fed Half Wave Antenna for 40m in inverted vee form. Deployment time around 5 minutes.

I’m very happy with the results. At least equivalent to a dipole but easier to deploy. This video shows the 2nd position I used during the QRP contest, more amongst the trees. I wanted to see what effect (Attenuation) the trees would have.
