I wrote a short story about my recent E51DXX  DX-Pedition to Rarotonga, South Cooks Islands.

I was blown away how well Elecraft KX3  performed with only 5 Watts and a vertical dipole at beach. 
Looking at my logs some of the longest distance contacts were almost 10,000 miles to Europe.
QRP, vertical dipole and a lot of salt water around your station seems to be a very good combination.

Has anybody else experienced this?

No, but I would like to!  Grin

I have worked many higher power stations that a similar set up. I was running anywhere from 700 mW to 5 watts. Maybe it helps on receive too.  Grin

I missed working you - it would have been nice to have a 2xQRP QSO with E5/S. So far my best 2xQRP QSOs out that way have been with KH6, A3, and JA.
