QRP and S Points

This very useful little diagram was posted on Wim PC4T's blog today showing how little effect going QRP usually has on operating effectiveness. Going from 100W to 500mW is just 4 S-points, so if your signal is strong you'd still be a decent signal. Of course, when conditions are marginal 100W may be helpful, but QRP is so much more fun.

Hello Roger, Thank you for my diagram on your Blog. For years I use a power of 500 mW to 1 watt when signals are S9. You can find the diagram with text on my PA1B QRPp site. Thank you for the compliment. 73, Bert http://a29.veron.nl/pa1b.htm#howpos
