My best catch while doing on the challenge was working YL2BJ with 500 mW for a distance of 16,658 km/W!
K3WWP:
Another great challenge. I’m glad to see a newcomer from the USA master the challenge also. I hope participation in the challenges continues to grow. Conditions weren’t all that great to EU here in the hours I get to operate (generally 0000 to 0100Z) so it took a bit longer than usual to master this one, and I only finished with a Sunday session earlier in the day when EU was coming in much better on 20 and 17 meters.
Thanks Ton and Matt.

Matt and Tom tnx

Not a lot of DXing this month but mastered the Challenge by August 21! 5 watts on a Yaesu FT-450D to a sloping dipole up 6 to 12 meters. All but two contacts on 20 meters, the others on 40 meters. I’m still working on the North America Challenge and just need 3 G’s for that one! I love the Challenges, adds a bit of spice to operating QRP. The European Challenge is especially fun for me to make contact across the pond. I generally get good signal reports from Europe. Whenever I identify myself as QRP I usually get nice compliments too. 72 to all, Rick (Cambridge, Mass. USA)
