Fine 40m XMAS experience

The 40m low power activity on the XMAS days were fantastic. I found it almost unbelievable, of what my little Softrock_RXTX6.1 is capable TXwise with the 450mW as well as RX wise. I have a high noise level from halogen light switching PSUs here otherwise receiving could be better. Despite my antenna - which is a full size dipole for 40m - is up only about 6m, my signal was heard down in VK7 and ZL. Thanks to all for participating to the activity.
