While I was writing the cards, I took up the plan to take a photograph of one of the many "more than 1000 Miles per Watt QSL cards" that I was writing, just to show how I present the "1000 MPW info" on my a card.
Actually I was going to photograph the QSL card, that I would send to LZ6C for a QSO with 1.8 mW. For this QSO I calculated 559091 Miles per Watt.
But when I just looked on the camera, it turned out to be that I took a picture of an other card for a QSO with LZ6C, that was made with 36 mW. I can not take a new picture, since both cards are already on their way to the Radio Club Silpa. hi

At the top of the card I give the power catatgory: QRP, QRPp or QRPpp.
QRPpp is the (not official) term, that I use for a power of less than 100 mW. hi
The FT-817 can be adjusted to 5 W, 2.5 W, 1 W or 500 mW, so I encircle the used power.
Well, after a serious mismatch the power of my FT-817 is 360 mW when adjusted to 500 mW, so I write 360 mW above the FT-817.
Since I used the 10 dB attenuator, I encircled the value 10 dB in the attenuator.
The most important value is the power to the antenna. Here 36 milliwatts.
My locator is JO22na. The locator of LZ6C is KN13ot.
Using both the locators, I calculated the distance and the Miles per Watt, with the excellent (Click) N9SSA Distance and MPW Calculator.
The distance is 1006 Miles and 27955 Miles per Watt.
Thanks to the Radio Club Silpa with their Excellent Ears.
