Spotted in Spain

My 30m 50mW QRSS signal has now been received in Spain by the grabber of EA1FAQ. (It's the one at 10140.030 kHz.)

That's a distance of 1458km or 906 miles.

[Off-topic note: When will Blogger fix its frigging "Add Images" uploader so it works in Firefox? I had to use the ghastly IE to insert the picture.]

hell Julian, well done. What fun is QRP. Yesterday I was reported with 50 milliwatt on 20 meter in Japan (WSPR) 114.748 Miles per watt. 73 Paul

Hello Julian,
I run Firefox 3 and it uploads the pictures nice. I only have to close manually the upload pop-up window.
Here's the Firefox data: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9) Gecko/2008052912 Firefox/3.0.

When you think of all those "Big Gun Kw boys" out there it's pretty damn good I reckon - 50mW, battery powered at that - remarkable really, even more so that there are actually Hams out there watching !

Hello Julian,

I have followed your QRSS activity with great interest. Amazing results from such a tiny system. QRSS is now on my to-do list.
Thanks for sharing your experience.

Good to read of your continued success with QRSS Julian. A better 30M antenna is going up either today or tomorrow, and the 30M QRSS kit should be arriving in the next few days.

Thanks for the inspiration,
