QRP NVIS on 75m

Logged a checkin to this morning on the regional Pico Net (3.925). I was running my FT-897D at 5 watts, into my G5RV (not great SWR on 75m), tuned through my match box, with batteries at only 11.9v.

I wasn’t beaming back to the earth like the fires of God from heaven, but I did get a 55 signal report, which, most definitely, gets the job done.
