WE2XGR/2 and Finbar made the first, and several subsequent W <> EU CW QSOs
on MF. Transmitting
conditions at WE2XGR/2: 400 watts transmitter power to 90' top loaded
vertical. The QSO were
relatively short but included a small amount of information besides 559 73

If you take a better look at Bob's QSL card (click to enlarge) you see 2000W
tx power. I used abt
400W to get the 5 W erp radiated by the antenna. If you listen to the signal
of Bob you will realize
that only RRRRR etc was not necessary.
You are right abt using QRP on these bands, a QRO tx is very useful to get
out of the garden. If
you consider the erp. we are actually working QRP on these low bands.

Aaaaaah so that was QRO, not QRP, right? Or what was the TX power, rather 5W
or rather 500W?
And what about Bob, 5W or 500W?
Just to make things clear regarding "QRO is not necessary".
Was it a longer QSO with some content or just "RRRRR 73 73 73

Some years ago Bob W2ZM using the experimental call WE2XGR/6 worked Finbar
EI0CF on CW and also
ssb (Bob ran ssb, Finbar ran CW).
Somewhere I have a .wav file from Finbar with his reception of Bob's ssb
I know that there have been other T/A contacts but I don't recall all the
