The CQ-M contest is a very nice contest in which I participate for many years. I like it, when in a contest you ca work with stations from all countries.
The first 11 QSO's were made with Russia on 14 MHz, with 800 mW or 400 mW. Then I went to 21 MHz to make more QSO's with stations from Russia.
Most QSO's were made on 14 MHz and 21 MHz and 4 QSO's on 7 MHz.
In this contest I used the least possible power in each contest QSO.
I was suprised to make 3 QSO's with 80, 40 and even 20 mW.
When the propagation is very good and signal are received with S9+10dB or even more, QSO's can be made with 100 mW or less.
All of the QSO's made with 800 mW or less and the QSO's with the USA are good for 1000 Miles per Watt.
For JT I used 2.7 wats. With less was not possible. hi
