This past weekend I played with JT65-HF on 10m.
I was once again overwhelmed at how well it works. I was using slightly less than 5 watts and a rotating dipole at 8 metres AGL.
I worked a bunch of European stations with this low power setup. The two contacts that stand out were with IK4UXA, he was using 2 watts and a sloper and the other was with HG9SM, he was using 1 watt and a ground plane antenna.
This is pretty amazing; it is highly unlikely that QSOs could have been possible using CW under the circumstances.
