      Hi All,

      On 26th of August 2006 we made EME QSO with Sam RN6BN. According to Sam
      this is new World record with low power EME.

      I used Linux Mandriva 2006 Free, WSJT 5.9.5 r261, TRX Kenwood TR751E +
      BF981, 40 Watts output and 4 elements DK7ZB antenna on my balcony. Of
      course the hardest job was done by RN6BN, see http://www.73.ru So
      compliments should go to Sam!

      Here is what I received from RN6BN:

      153400 4 -24 2.9 -175 2 * CQ H RN6BN 1 0
      153600 0 -28 2.9 -175 4 *
      153600 0 -28 2.9 -175 4 *

      154000 0 -29 2.8 -178 4 # LZ1BB RN6BN KN95 OOO 0 10
      154200 4 -28 -175 5 RRR
      154400 4 -29 -172 3 RRR
      154600 5 -28 -170 -5 RRR
      154800 3 -29 -168 3 73
      155000 5 -28 -165 1 73
      155200 1 -31 -164 3 73

      And this is what Sam received from me:

      153700 0 -27 2.4 -242 3 # RN6BN LZ1BB KN12 O ? 0 3
      154100 3 -29 -250 0 RO
      154200 4 -28 -175 5 RRR
      154700 1 -31 -264 1 RRR
      154900 2 -30 -270 3 73

      Here is Sam's message on KST chat:
      1544Z RN6BN Sam> da-a-a Harry, you super DX for me !! New EME QRP record
      1547Z RN6BN Sam> LZ1BB Harry TNX for super QRP QSO, GL and 73!!

      Sam published screenshots of our QSO. I made screenshots also. They are
      not published yet but there is no doubt I received his mega signal.

      I dedicate this record to my sister in law Katia. She is fighting for
      her life
      in the hospital now. And I dedicate it to Joe Taylor, K1JT, and his
      developers team. It should not be possible without their work!

      73, Harry LZ1BB
