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

CQ'ing on 160M.  He was 20 over S-9.  It was about 2 or three in the

The station was 4X4NJ......
