Over 100km on 137kHz with 50uW ERP

Just got a screen grab from G3WCB 101km away showing my QRSS30 beacon signal being received at his QTH near Windsor. Mine is the lower trace in which you can see "BM" (part of XBM). It is not strong, but there. I will leave the beacon running with around 50uW ERP during today.

A few hours later G3WCB got me stronger with the XBM very clear on the screen.

Henny van Elst in Holland was also seeing traces at the right frequency, but too weak to positively identify.
