Take, a Japanese ham operating under JG8NQJ/JD1 was QRV while away from his meteorological duties on Marcus Island. He was spotted and I could hear him faintly at my SC station. He was being worked by station after station. I booted up my remote station in San Joaquin, CA and there he was loud perhaps S7 on the SteppIR Tribander. I worked him at 100 watts.
