As a milliwatt enthousiast I often make QSO's with the lowest possible power.
It is great fun to make contest QSO's with 50 mW or less when the propagation is very good.
After some years there were many QSOs with very low power in the log.
So I felt the need to make an extended overview of the results to be displayed on this website.
I have been puzzling a long time how I would present the data.
I choose to indicate only the confimed QSO's.
This means that all the QSO's listed here are correct and also create a list of confirmed DXCC-countries.
The power used in each QSO, I reduced to 12 power categories shown.
For example: 41 mW, 45 mW and 50 mW fall into the 50 mW category.
And 82 mW, 95 mW and 98 mW into the 98 mW category.
The most impressive list, directly below, shows the number of QSOs per DXCC-country per power category.
Followed by the table that indicates the number QSO's per band per power category.
In this table you can see the distribution of the power used, for each QSO per band.
The data in the table "QSO's over the years" shows that the conditions slowly change.
The information displayed on this website runs from September 2003 (new call sign) up February 2010.
All QSO's on this page are confirmed.
2003 Only the 3 last months. 2010 Only January and February.
In this bar chart the number of QSO's over the years with different power levels are shown.
The yellow bar presents the number of QSO's made with less than 100 milliwatts. (QRPpp)
The brown bar presents the QSO's made with less 1 watt, but more than 100 mW. (QRPp without QRPpp)
The green bar presents the QSO's made with 1 watt or more, but less than 5 watts. (QRP without QRPpp and QRPp)
The yellow bar is the most interesting.
This bar shows the number of QSO's made with less than 100 mW and peaks to 150 QSO's in 2005.
The decline after 2005 is caused mainly by the decreasing number of sunspots.
Over the years the propagation slowly declined.
Because I often use the lowest possible power in each QSO, the number of QSO's per year made with
QRPpp, slowly decreased and the number of QSO's with QRPp (brown bar) and QRP (green bar) increased.
The number of QSO's with more than 100 mW and more than 1 W is also increasing by increasing activity.
The decrease in the number of QSO's in 2009, is caused by the fact that QSLs from 2008 via the bureau,
are sent earlier than the QSL's of 2009. Also in 2009 I made 7% less QSOs.
All QSO's of 2010 shown here, are confirmed via eQSL.
The QSL cards via the bureau take much more time to arrive.
