2-way transatlantic QRP

Just worked VE3DJX on 14.060MHz CW. He was using 5W to a 3el and I was using 5W to my (low) 15m long end-fed long wire. Despite the poor sunspot conditions it is still possible to make 2-way transatlantic QSOs using QRP with the most basic of stations and antennas.

That's nice. Just now when the sunspot cycle is low. In the seventies I was working only with CW and I worked the West Coast of the USA with 2 watts.
