1 W to reach Europe on 160m fm west coast by W1CK

On October 28 I had the chance to spot W1CK from west coast. Steve worked at this time with 5w. It was already a first one for me. This morning at sunrise, the conditions were great for a new hop between San Diego (West Coast) and Europe. I was not alone to take advantage of these conditions:

2013-12-22 07:22 W1CK 1.838164 -20 0 DM13ie 5 F59706 JN07th 9190 37

Then, Steve managed the timing and lower power to 1w (all time first one) at 07:40z official sunrise time at my QTH:
2013-12-22 07:30 W1CK 1.838163 -20 0 DM13ie 5 F59706 JN07th 9190 37
2013-12-22 07:34 W1CK 1.838164 -21 0 DM13ie 2 F59706 JN07th 9190 37
2013-12-22 07:38 W1CK 1.838163 -23 0 DM13ie 2 F59706 JN07th 9190 37
2013-12-22 07:40 W1CK 1.838163 -25 0 DM13ie 1 F59706 JN07th 9190 37

Can we go lower? it is likely... Anyways Thanks to Steve to provide opportunities and animations in 160m band.

It was also an effective try of my new Wellbrook ALA100 active loop, the HG version just received from Andrew Ikin.

Thank you to all, Patrick
