Run the feedline onto your house gutter system and let us know what you work.



Hi, all,

After working an AA6 on a tenth of a watt, I'm wondering if it's possible to go across the pond on that power. My antenna falls under the "basic wire" category of the NAQCC; Skyblaster Yagis are out at my QTH.

Can it be done?

Has it been done?

How has it been done?

As per N4DSP above, most all QRP DXers know all about N4QA and what he can do with his 35mw beacon on 14.002 and other frequencies with his GADS antenna (Gutter And Down Spout).

My record so far is Spain on 100 milliwatts (0.1W).  Got the card.  Yes it is definitely possible to jump the pond with less than a watt.
