On shortwave QRP with 1 to 5 W HF output into an end-fed 40m long wire-antenna.... < 10 W EIRP. Update 2015-01-14: storm "Felix" felled some trees in the garden, so I had to do a new installation of the antenna.It's now 27,90 m long and I'm very curious to see how it works in the future. Update 2015-11-21:Still loving QRP (5 W) but from now also playing in the Low Power Class with 5 to 40 W PEP... WOW!!!
