First TX in Italy

I finally made my first TX in Italy. I was able to upgrade to Amateur Extra in June, so I can finally TX while I'm here for a few more months. First attempt is with WSPR to try and adjust TX audio level on my SignaLink USB into the FT-817. I'm getting a couple of bars of ALC transmitting at 1W. Using an end fed 20m sloped from my balcony to the corner of our lot in a NW direction I'm tx'ing as I/KB0VER per the CEPT and Italian rules. I'm getting into most of NE Europe including Iceland, Spain, The Canary Islands, and the East Coast of the U.S.. Pretty amazing what you can do with 1W. Happy to be back on the air!
