Best Reception at 100 Microwatts 3868 Miles by Peter Knol PA1SDB
Test between WB3ANQ Pasadena, MD FM19rc and Peter Knol PA1SDB Appingedam, NETHERLANDS JO33kh
Path distance was 3868 miles, 6227 kilometers. Transmitter was HP-3336B with rf output set to -10 dBm = 100 microWatts. Waveform was a 10 Hz Sawtooth The antenna was a dipole @ 27′ cut for 13.555 mHz.
Peter was receiving on a Alinco DX-70 and a tuned dipole.
The upper signal was the 100 microwatt. The lower signal was DFCW at 4 milliWatt level from a PC-VFO into a halfwave vertical for reference
Below is Peter’s report for our 38,679,972 miles per watt reception.

This time your 100 uW signal is better visible as it was several days ago.
This is the 2nd time that I was able to detect your Sawtooth at a 100 uW level.
I think that is proof enough that 100 uW can make the trip over the Ocean.
