And you're saying....
The number of stations worked, DX or otherwise, has no relation to the efficiency of the antenna system. The real difference comes when you can compare yours to someone else's set up. For example, times when you think the band is dead, others are working DX. You have to remember, antenna gain, or in this case overall loss, is reciprocal. Although receive losses are partially overcome by receiver gain, it is certainly not true of transmitting losses.
High loss antennas, like hamsticks and the ATAS series, do prove one thing, however; QRP is alive and well!
