QRP 12448 kilometers with just 1 watt!

Low power operations of vast distances can be a fun challenge. Today I tried out a new way of operating, a digital mode known as WSPR. My license doesn’t allow me to transmit on digital modes yet, but I can listen. Below is a transcript from the webserver for WSPR. I heard WY7USA from USA a total of 12448 kilometers- he was using just 1 watt!
