100 milliwatts

If nothing else, WSPR is great at detecting band openings that might otherwise go unnoticed. The 20m band seems to be dead most of the time but a low-power WSPR session sometimes reveals surprises.

What's surprising here (at least to me) is that during the following session, numerous European stations were monitoring the band and not a single one of them heard me. But I was heard long-path by the VK's and at my antipode by 3B8IK.

Output power was 100 milliwatts with my (solar powered) Raspberry Pi to a 2-element Yagi up 17 meters pointed toward EU.
