My best was actually a 6m CW contact about 6-7 years ago.

It was with K2RTH in Miami (I'm in Los Angeles), distance ~2500 mi, at 3 mW output power on 50.090 MHz: 833,333 "miles per Watt."

That was my power; Bruce's was actually lower, and I heard him at about 300uW.  I couldn't get down to that power as I ran out of attenuators.

Hello 2 All.....
To date, and years ago now.....my best longest distance SSB contact was long path over the North Pole with KC4USF near Scott Base, Antarctica on 21.400Mhz using 200 milli-watts OR 77,110 Miles Per Watt...QRPARCI Award # 3180. Recently,thus far this year,April 2014 my best long distance SSB contact was talking to LZ1JY- my friend Nick in Bulgaria on 7.167 Mhz using 50 milli-watts.
Qrping IS TONS OF FUN!!
After all these many decades.... the thrill of working DX via Qrpp has never left me.
Always my BEST to all of my fellow Brother and Sister Qrpers.
Regards with many 72.....73.

Don's KC4USF is truly one of the "furthest QRPp contacts" and is more amazing as it was done using SSB!  This also confirms that under most circumstances the conditions of the ionosphere and its ability to refract and/or duct RF energy may be considered to be the most influential factor in our radio communication.  Well done to WA2TPU!
