I can echo with what Gus is saying. When I went to Miquelon Is. for CQWW
SSB last fall, Europe was ALWAYS loud! We worked almost 1,000 QSO's on
80M alone. Judging from the QSL's rcvd, a pretty large percentage were
running 25-50W to low dipoles. There weren't many stations that we had to
dig out of the mud either. I can remember turning on the radio one
afternoon after a walk around the island. I heard a very loud station
CQ'ing on 160M. He was 20 over S-9. It was about 2 or three in the
The station was 4X4NJ......
