Great Nicola, here justr worked UN3M from Kazakhstan 7900KM on 15 meters with my vertical hook up to my metal fence (chain link fence  is 183 Ft = 55 meters long around my lot.

My vertical is a buddipole long whip with 1 arm of 22 inches = 55.8 Cm total of 11 feet = 3.3 meters
I cover the full 21 MHz, with an SWR of 1.2 to 1 at band edge.

50 ft of RG-8/X plus a 1:1 Balun.

Good dx'ing, and gives us more reports like this, it is really interesting and fun

72, Michel the QRP'er

I love QRP/QRPp & CW

Great Nicola, here I have to wait very early in the morning to work the VK/ZL on 40 or 30 meters.

Never heard them during the day on  any bands, because of the time of the day here versus their times.

Good job and I wish you much more, and most of all, the QSL cards it is always fun to be able to confirm those nice DX.

72, Michel
