Jim G3YLA and I operated HF and VHF QRP from the top of Beeston Bump in Norfolk as planned today.

3W CW on 40m raised Peter G3XJS in Kent.
I thought I would do a Reverse Beacon Network (RBN) check tonight.
I was pleasantly surprised to see I was picked up all over the place, including the US, from the top of the bump.
Jim G3YLA wasn't for some reason - not sure why as his CW is waaaay better than mine. Perhaps it was because he responded to CQs and didn't call CQ himself.

chuffed I was picked up in the US (just) with 2.5W to an EFHW for 40m (click to enlarge).
