Using the Reverse Beacon Network to see how well you are being heard
I decided to do a wee bit of QRP (well, almost!) work tonight on 30 metres (10 Mhz), running just 50 watts from my Yaesu FT-1000MP into the home brew inverted V. I just didn't want to run any power. I was "in the mood" for low-ish power so I ran less than barefoot. Within a short time I had some European stations coming back to me, and I worked a few enjoyable QSOs. Then I went to the Reverse Beacon Network website and put my own callsign in the filter and found to my surprise that I was being heard quite well. There were a couple of stations in the United States hearing me too. The best reports were from Sweden and Germany at 33 dB Signal to Noise Ratio and 32 dB SNR. Nice!
You can see the reports from the above screenshot. Also interesting is the fact that I was being heard on 6 metres in Wales a few days ago!
