New Trans Continental Distance Personal Best (MILES PER WATT)

New Transcontinental Personal Best- 

I had to a call a second time to break my personal best with margin (previous best 9800 MPW from NY4G to CE2AWW)

First Call NY4G to HA3NU - Hungary 4982 miles with 1/2 watt or 9964 MPW 0131 UTC
Second Call signed as VY2AJ/W4 to HA3NU - same 4982 miles with 0.4 watt or 12455 MPW 0145 UTC  (VY2AJ is my Canadian Call Sign)

Third Call Signed as NY4G/QRPp to HA3NU - same 4982 miles with 250mW or 19928 miles per watt @ 0154 UTC

HA3NU asked me how much power I was running - I told him 250mW.  He asked me what kind of antenna - I told him dipole at 60 feet.  His comment was that my signal was super steady  - gave me a 559 report

Made it to US Virgin Islands with 1 Watt on 160m CW.   NY4G to NP2J 1621 miles per watt

The previous days resulted  in Intra-Continental Personal Best

NY4G to W2EG 684 miles with 100mW  6840 miles per watt (40m CW)
