Absolute major achievement today: Phonie QSO (SSB) on 20m from Germany to the USA (DL6MHC <-> W1C) with only 20W and a end fed wire antenna! First time for me but I was lucky to be one of the first responding to them calling CQ.
@DL6MHC which antenna did you use?
@purple This one here: https://www.hyendcompany.nl/antenna/multiband_80402010m_#main
It is mounted about 6m above ground.
@DL6MHC an end-fed?! ok now i'm suitably impressed. maybe the bands are coming back up for us.
