WAS at 1,000 miles+ per Watt
Best QSO - Fixed Station - W4VQ in FL at 2 mWatts - about 367,200 miles per watt

After getting 5BWAS, 5BDXCC, and USA-CA I turned to QRP During the summer of 1997.
The QRO stuff was just too easy.
Of special interest is homebrewing and QRP portable operation.
I can also be found running mobile - mainly for County Hunting.
QRP work has netted me WAS with a total power output of 2.3 watts.
I have worked all states at 500 mWatts or less.
I was the first to work USA-CA all QRP CW.
2,629 Counties worked with less than 1 Watt.
My prime mode has always been CW.
97% of the 45,000+ QSOs in the log are CW.
For the past year I have been 99% CW, 98% QRP, and 53% QRPp.
