Since putting up what amounts to a clothesline on my roof a month ago, I've managed to transmit and make contact with 37 states (and multiple countries) using 10 watts.
This is the power equivalent of putting an LED lightbulb on my roof, flicking it on and off, and having the east coast see it and reply.
Never ceases to feel amazing to me. #hamradio
