EME QRP 80W is Hard work!

Running Icom IC-9100 barefoot.
Not pushing it to the limit - staying around 70 - 80W to the antenna.
So, this is definitely putting me into the QRP < 200 class in ARRL EME Contest.

Even with a degradation of 4.36dB signals bounced from the moon are big.

Managed to get through to RU1AA - Alex
Probably what we call a "big gun"..

In SpecJT we notice the signals very good and the last two bars are "RRR" report.

HB9Q also having a extremely loud signal
Big gun, also...
