Bearing 086 degrees; Range 3,374 miles

This is my QSL for a recent QRP-to-QRP contact.  It’s noteworthy because I was laying out across the couch in my loft with my little KX1 on my chest running 1 watt to a 28′ wire tossed into the top of a maple tree just off my second floor rear deck, with a 33′ counterpoise dropped off the railing to the ground below.  Bal had 5 watts and a 44′ doublet.  For me that comes out to 3, 374 miles-per-watt.  Not too shabby!
