Hi Jay,

I remember that one, congrats, but I don't recall the date. I'd like to
make a summary of TA on 600/630m.

date time freq mode   east          |        west
?         500? CW  EI0CF 559  20m T | WE2XGR/2 559 400W  90' top loaded tower
               SSB EI0C  ?    20m T | WE2XGR/6
9 2 10 0400 502 CW PA0A 400W 5W ERP | WE2XGR/6

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 sk.

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
didididadidaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa" :-)

All fyi,

I had a CW QSO on 502 kHz with Bob WE2XGR/6 on Feb 9 2010, 04:00 UTC at that time the DX record on CW. On my website (in plane Dutch) a copy of the QSL card and an audio file of the first part of the QSO including a restart of my keyer. My output during the QSO was abt, 5 W erp.

(see: EERSTE QSO NEDERLAND etc.) for the audio file click left on QSO WE2XGR-6 v3

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 signal. I know that there have been other T/A contacts but I don't recall all the details.
