CQ WW DX SSB
In my entire HAM career I made a few phone QSO's on HF.
As a 100% CW operator this was a big thrill for my.
When I started, I did not know what to expect. The power of my FT-817 is limited
to 2.7 W, but I still managed to make QSO's in SSB. It was hard work with a fixed power.
In CW QSO's I often use the very low power, so I can always increase the power with 3 dB,
when my signal is not heard.
In this CQ WW DX contest I worked 17 DXCC countries in 29 QSO's.
In total 15 European countries, Canada and the USA.
Despite the large power, the QSO's with Canada and the USA are good for more than 1000 Miles per Watt. hi
