I worked CO6LC in Cuba from Chicago today using one watt to my autotuned wire dipolish antenna & Yaesu 817. Easy, armchair QSO on 15 meters.
A minute later, I also partially worked YY4KWB in Venezuela on one watt but he kept getting one letter of my call wrong so I had to go to QRO (increase pwr, I had to look up) to maximum power: five watts. Successful QSO logged after that.
Props to propagation and the other guys' antennas.
